    Hi everyone! I am a new chicken mom to 6 pullets...or maybe 5 pullets and a roo? I was hoping someone could take a look and see which you think it is? We aren't allowed to have roosters and I would hate to give it up! Also, what breed would you guess? I got them from Tractor Supply in a bin marked Amberlinks, but I am not so sure. Sorry for the poor quality pics!

    Thank you everyone

    Yes, it looks you have 1 cockerel, and the rest look like pullets. Cute chicks!

    The one in question certainly appears to have advanced comb development so it's definitely possible you got a cockerel in the bunch. Amberlinks are not sex linked and usually have a 10% margin of sexing error like most other breeds. But all your white chicks look like Amberlinks to me... what makes you think they're not?
    (The black ones of course are not)

    Only because it was towards the end of the chick days, and the chicks seemed to be kind of mixed up. :)
