    These were picked up as 3 week old chicks at the end of July.
    Started getting an egg or 2 about the end of November.
    By now I expected to be able to tell based on eggs alone.

    Guess I never asked did I. Haha

    Thank you.

    How did you determine that? Saddle feathers?

    All females. Looks like red and black sex links for breeds.

    Egg production should kick up now that the days are getting longer.

    Thanks all.

    Yes, I bought them as sexlinks, but some days I questioned if they were pullets.

    Good birds. They follow me around like dogs.
