    Got them at TSC last week and the guy said they were gold and red sex links. They are all supposed to be pullets. We got seven all together.We have three of the really light yellow ones. They have very faint gold stripes down thier backs. Two other ones are very reddish looking with very dark red stripes and another two are more yellow than red and have lighter stripes than the two darker red ones. Im just wondering if the light yellow ones are boys and if anyone knows which ones are the gold and which ones the reds. I've looked on here and have found conflicting information on the gold and red sex links. I'm a little confused lol!

    My red sex-link males were yellow to start with, with no chipmunk striping at all down their backs. They feathered out white, and after 6 weeks or so, started getting red in their wings.

    The males are the light ones, the females are the red ones with the dark stripe

    I agree the light ones are males and the dark ones are pullets.
