    If they told you they were female they are most likely a sexlink

    They are a hybrid that can be sexed at hatch by color. Generally good layers.

    I have 2 gold sex links around the same age and they look identical. I've read they can be prone to health issues but no experience with them to back that up. Mine have been great so far and looking forward to what I've read is excellent egg production.
