    It works! [​IMG]

    Those look like Production Reds though. Red Sex Links have white down and some white tail feathers.

    The bantam in the middle is CUTE! [​IMG]

    I ordered red star sexlink stright run and the roosters were white and the females were red when I recieved them. I checked the cackle site and production reds and cherry eggers are not sexlinked so I think I got what I ordered.
    I have looked on the net and what I saw that had white tails were Golden comets
    If they are not what I ordered it is to lated to change now.

    I looked again on the cackle site and thier red star is showing some white in the tail but mm hatchery shows a bird just like mine for red star so it is anybodys guess, my bird are showing some white festhers and some brown feathers.So it is a toss up as to what I have.

    There are a few ways to get red sex links... RIR on RIW is referred to as a "golden comet". Another cross is a "cinnamon queen". RSL and BSL are just generic terms.
