Red sex link pullets turned out to be male?

    I purchaced a couple red sex link pullets from tractor supply and upon getting them home I noticed that their wing feathers look like male wing feathers, only one row instead or the two rows I expect to see on a pullet. So are they really pullets? Ive never raised sex links so Im wondering if maybe they dont feather like other breeds or whats up.

    Sexlinks are not bred to be feather sexable, they are bred to be colour sexable only. So as long as they are reddish coloured chicks you got pullets.
