Hello all,
Newbie chicken owner here. Would appreciate some help with ID and gender of these two chicks. We were told they are sexlink chickens, but no other info other than that.

Thanks.

With the red sex links, the little cockerels appear yellow while the pullets have golden down. That is how you can tell them apart at hatching. When that pullet comes into lay, she will most likely become much friendlier.

Thanks for the details. Surprisingly the poultry farm didn't have this info.

Unfortunately we lost our first pullet. We suspect a hawk. :(

Just checking once more if y'all think this is still a cockerel.
