    Sorry to be brief, but I just got off work and snapped these before I have to get busy again. I just wanted a second opinion on gender. Thanks a ton in advance! I've been on here so much since getting this first group of four. They're about a month and a half old.

    Welcome to BYC!
    They look like Red sex-links. If they are Red sex-links they are all definitely pullets cause the males would be almost completely white.

    Definitely Red Sex Link pullets. RSLs are laying machines. You should get loads of large brown eggs from those girls. :eek:)

    Awesome thank you so much. I figured as much but you can never be too sure. Guy I got them from even offered a policy where if I get any roosters I can exchangem for free! Guess I won't be needing that.
    Love this site though. So helpful for a first timer. Having someone around that's done it for years isn't hurting me either. Looking forward to the warm season with these.

    Oh and I should add; dead on with the breed assumption.
