    They look like Gold Comets, but since they are white, that means they are all roosters .

    But in the second picture, the two with their faces in the corner of the fence and bricks, those look to have more of a pullet head so if those two are pullets, then I think they are Amber Links. Can you get a close up of those two's heads ? But the others are roos for sure though.

    Where are you from if you dont mind me asking ? I dont know much about Amber links as we dont have many here in the US, I think the Amber Links are mainly in the UK. I just know that both sexes are white like that with gold leakage.

    I live in Pa. I was hoping for pullets but kinda figured they would all be roos. One of them has a different color feet then the rest if that helps any.

    OK See if you can get some more pics tomorrow and maybe we can tell better. I added what I believe is a correction to that Amberlink thread as to what breeds make them.

    Your chicks look just like a bunch that I was given that had come from TSC. They were also the $1.00 chicks. the person that got them for me said he was told that they were Amberlinks also. I have read evrything that I can find on this breed, (which is not much) so far I have found the pullets to be very sweet natured, the roosters however I have had a bit of a contest of wills with. I have 11 total with 6 pullets and 5 roosters. One rooster seemd to be top dog so far and gets mad if I so much as touch a hen! has anyone had experience with them after they start laying? How about setting eggs?
