    I think I have read myself to the point of confusion when it comes to what sex these are.
    These pictures were taken over the weekend. Chicks are 4 weeks old in the pix.
    I have read about round (f) or angled heads (m), tail feathers lengths, Heads up, Heads down. It seems you look at them at different times, They hold different characteristics.
    So I figured I would ask the Pro's.
    Can someone tell me what these are M/F? as well as a possible Breed?

    They look like red sex-links to me, and females.

    Look like girls to me, but as to the breed, not my forte.

    Yeah, I looked at the pics and was like, Hey, Thats a Red X Link... but I thought that was impossible because you would have known... then I saw the other posts agreeing with me, so yep, you've got a healthy herd of femal X Links! They look just like our Rita, she's little but spunky and the best layer in the flock!

    well they were given to our Daughter by a farmer guy and she gave them to us because she has to many as it is.
    The last time this guy gave her some chicks a few years back they were both roo's. So yes I was a little concerned this time around since we are just getting back into chickens.
    Thanks again for the help.
