    This is a 2 month old red sexlink, it was supposed to be a hen I’m now having my doubts, its combs say rooster to me but it doesn’t seem to have a very rooster-e tail. It doesn’t look much like a male sexlink in color to me but I haven’t seen any photos of one this young. So what do people think rooster/odd hen, or a different breed, me I have no clue.

    First one is IDENTICAL to the "mystery chicks" I bought at TSC in May. There are a couple of us here in VA that are still trying to figure out what they are, though we're starting to believe they are Dekalb Amberlinks.

    Thanks everyone for the replies, he's not a very nice chicken though so I'll have to give him away no matter what he is.

    Thats what my two boys look like. We have 7 of the red sex links. The boys are mostly white with some red feathers and also gold, the girls are mostly red with some white feathers. We have one girl that I have no idea if she is a sex link or not. At first I thought she was a boy because she is white with some gold feathers. But no red feathers at all, so she looks different than the other two boys. I have no idea what she is, but just happy its not another roo!
