    Hey all we got some red sex link chicks and well I'm not sure how old they are, they are almost all fully feathered but we where told they are all pullets but I'm thinking maybe this one is a roo, I know the picture isn't the best!!

    If they are sexlinks, then they are all going to be female. That looks more like a Rhode Island Red roo in the close up.

    A picture of its saddle area (back/tail area) would really help with a gender id!

    Quote:The one in the back looks like a Golden Comet, and as far as the other one- I have noticed that the red girls mature faster so don't count your chickens yet!
