    Red Stars are sex-link chickens, usually males are white or very light yellow, females are light brown. So, if it's a Red Star I'd say you've got a pullet.

    Red sexlinks can be sexed by coloring. Pullets are red with white through the wings and tail. Males are mostly white. You have a pullet. Rhode Island Red/Production Reds are all red, with a bit of black.
