    Both look like pullets to me. Golden sexlink roos are mostly white.

    Coloration definitely leads one to believe they are pullets. Its why people like sex links so much. Roos have a blonde color to them. They have long legs but other than that they look like pullets.

    Based off the pictures they both look like hens to me. I had two sex link hens that look exact like them. If your going by the comb size its hard to tell. I have 9 hens all mixed breed and atleast 5 of them have really big combs but they all lay so they def arnt roosters. So even with the big comb it could go either way. But on my pet chicken website it states that "If you have a "sex link" chick, it's easy! Males and females hatch out different colors. Red Stars are a very common sex link, and the females are a reddish-gold while the males are a buttery color." Based of my expirence that statement was true to my sexlink chicks. So id say you have to hens.

    Whew!! Thanks! My husband had me convinced that she was a he because her comb is bigger than the others but her body shape and feathers are the same so I wasn't sure. Glad she's going to lay! Her name is Rooster... Can't change it now, she knows it! Lol

    Yea the comb thing is kinda tricky to go by, this pic is of my year and a half old Rode Island Red hen. You can see its pretty big lol but with her comb like that Rooster is the perfect name for her:)[​IMG]
