    I bought a Red Star and a Black Star from the pullet bin at the feed store. I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but doesn't that mean that they are definitely girls? I just want to be sure before i get even more attached that I can keep them. They are about 6 weeks old and the Black sex link looks like she/he has the start of wattles.

    Pullets are young hens, but if he seller can't sex them then it could be either. Also [​IMG].

    Quote:IDK about red sex links first hand. But I do black ones. If the black one has a white dot on it's head, it is a rooster. Girls are solid black heads.
