    Golden Comet chicks can be sexed at hatching, so they actually arent straight run.

    Golden Comets are sex linked chickens. they are different colors at hatch. females are red, males are white.

    the yellows are males and the others (yellow with a red back or chipmunky markings) are the females.

    this would only apply to the first generation of chicks. offspring of sex linked birds will not be sex linked.

    Quote:no problem. the males are decent for fryers, if you don't let them get past 13-15 weeks. the females are EGG MACHINES!

    enjoy. [​IMG]

    your price is very fair, by the way. cheaper than a hatchery and no minimum.
