    I know it's a little early but I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this flock. I was told they are RIR and Golden Comets. I am not positive on the age, the clerk thought they were a couple weeks. I am new at this! Thanks so much y'all!

    That's what they look like to me- sex links and a few production reds. If your asking abut gender the sex links are 100% female, that's the nature of the name and they are sexed by color at hatch. You've 90% chance (much better actually) for the production reds (hatchery RIR) to be accurately vent sexed as female.

    I think you're right. There are some Red Sex-links (female) and Production Reds (too young to sex).

    Thanks everyone for the info. Would you agree these are about 2weeks old? That's what the young kid at the feed store thought. [​IMG]
