    Is this a male or female Golden Comet?

    This one is about 14-16 weeks old. No spurs, doesn't crow but looks like a male to me.

    I thought that golden comets were color sex linked: the males are white, and the females red. I know the 6 golden comet pullets I got were all red.

    It looks like you may have a rooster.

    Being able to tell the sex at hatch by feather color is what a sex link, by definition, is.

    It'll crow for sure. He's not golden, he's white with the stray brown feathering on the back. Is he the only one you have?
