    Pictures below. We got these ones bc they say 99% sexed by color... but after looking at more pictures online, I am hoping they are all girls!! Two of them were way redder in color, while the other one golden... now they are about 3 weeks old and seem to be all growing in red feathers... do they seem to be all female? Also recently got two more “Golden sexlinks” today and I can see this whole chicken thing being a bit more addictive than perceived!

    It's a little too young to tell if they are male or female, but I wouldn't be worried about the slight variation in tones. If you're still worried please post a photo of each of their combs at 6-8 weeks old and I can accurately tell you :)

    Welcome! Only three? Be careful when you go back to the feed store, because 'chicken math' might strike.
