    Some of the folks on this forum say they think they are red sex links and they are about 8 weeks old.

    If they are red sex links the roosters will start turning white around now but the hens will stay red

    Well, two are lighter but I wouldn't call them white. One of them is shown in first picture.

    I really hope they aren't roosters. They are pretty timid and don't seem "rooster like". However one of the red ones does seem a little "pushy"
