    She/he is more brown than red compared to other golden comets... she/he is a caramel colored golden comet.

    Still a pullet. Male sexlinks are almost all white/cream with brownish red feathers on their backs and sometimes on their wings. They also sprout huge combs and wattles at a very young age, as early as 6 weeks. You'd have seen that weeks and weeks ago, had it been a cockerel.

    Female for sure. A male would be a different color pattern. She should lay lots of eggs for you when she gets older!

    Sex links are great! You can tell their gender right away based on color alone. I'd have to agree with everyone here, she's definitely a pullet! [​IMG]

    Telling the gender of sex-link chickens is pretty easy.

    I was surprised to see someone asking the gender of one.
