    Could anyone help to tell the gender of these chicks? . The leghorn and both sex links are supposed to be pullets, other 3 are straight run.

    So, there's no way to tell by the wing feathers, that's not going to help at all. They are all too young to tell aside from vent sexing. The red sex link is a pullet, though, because of its color. If the black one truly is a black sex link, then it's a cockerel, because it has a head spot. The rest, there's no way to tell, you'll just have to wait and see.

    X3. Also fairly certain your "Golden Sebright" is a Buff Brahma bantam. [​IMG]

    And I wanted to add that the bottom one is not a golden sebright, not with those feathered legs.

    @Pyxis @Alexandra33 yeah I really wasn't sure what that chick was, and it looked like the sebright chicks. I don't know they couldn't have feathered legs! Thanks!

    You're more than welcome! [​IMG] That's still a great breed, even if not what you expected. I have a Buff Brahma bantam about the same age as yours - it's precious. [​IMG]
