    Hello,

    So we just got our first chickens ever :eek: The kids are all exited, and want to know which ones are the boys and which are the girls. They are golden sexlinks, so I know it is fairly easy to tell them apart. Every site I look at says that, since they are sexlinks they are easy to sex. But they don't say how! Please help by either describing the difference or directing me to pics somewhere, thanks.

    Also, it is my understanding that this is a cross between two breeds. So which two breeds? Thanks again.

    You tell the difference by the colour. Usually the females are more ginger, and the males are more white or cream.

    Thank you for that response, however they did not discuss Golden sex-links. They only mentioned red and black. I do notice that some of the chicks are quite lighter than the others, and so maybe that is the difference in golden sex-links as well.
