    Another question I have several Sex Links some of them have gold on them either a little or a lot and then I have some solid black. Are they classified by the color ie Gold Sex Link/Black Sex Link or just Sex Links?

    There are red sex links and there are black sex links. The last pic you have there looks to be a Rhode Island Red. Rest are red sex links.

    Those all look like ladies (the top two look like Production Reds or New hampshire reds to light to be RIRs), also Sex links are grouped by color and by what they were bred with. I have both Red sex-links and Black sex-links:

    The top two are definitely not Rhode Island Reds. The bottom two look like Rhode Island Reds. The question you asked at the bottom, it sounds like you have two different kinds of Sex Links. There are Black Sex Link chickens and there are Red or Golden Sex Link chickens. Those are the only colors of Sex Links that exist. The different breeds of chickens that make either Black Sex Links or Red/Gold Sex Links vary. It sounds like you have Red Sex Links and Black Sex Links. :) Can you post a picture of each and that way we can all see?

    All the Red hens and the adult sex links where given to us from an overcrowding situation so while I know their ages I dont know their breeds (red ones)
