Because of this thread, https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=355918 where I found out that all 3 of my RIR are actually cockerels, now I am paranoid about my other 3. They are red sex links so I thought for sure they would be hens... now I am scared that maybe there was some miscommunications and maybe they thought I wanted roosters??? I REALLY need to find out if these red sex links are PULLETS or not. They are 5 weeks old. HELP PLEASE?!?

All 3:



Lily:



Buttercup:





Daisy:






and if this helps, here is one the day we got them, at 4-5 days old:

I am so worried about this
it's 1am and I am going on a field trip with a bunch of first graders in a few short hours. I was hoping someone was around that could tell me, but guess not at 1am

Oh thank God. As babies, they were sorta yellow, but had that darker tint a little bit so I really had no idea. They definitely have a lot of red on them now.. SO glad to know the roosters would not be red. Think I can sleep now, THANK YOU SO MUCH!


I don't know if you saw my other thread or not but my RIR's turned out to be boys, atleast 2 of them, if not all 3, so I got really paranoid about the others!

Thank you everyone.

I am confused as to what breed they are then. When I bought them, they said Red sexlinks. (but of course they also sold me either 2 or 3 roosters/OUT OF 3- RIR) Are they red? or golden comet? or what? Thanks so much for the help!

Deep breath and breathe...they're pullets!! Yep, they call 'em either redsexlinks or golden comets and cinnamon queens too, I believe-don't hold me to the last one! Have fun and they're great layers too. I've got five and I just love 'em!!
