    I was wondering what breed these are and if they are male or female, they are 2 weeks old. I got the eggs from an Amish lady and was told they are Golden Reds, wondering if that is actually a breed.
    Thanks,

    I am not sure of the breed, could be Ameraucana. As for the sex...that one up front I am guessing a roo. Those tiny pin feathers just below the shoulder part of the wing are all the same length...that is supposed to be a male....if that is true.

    Hens are different lengths and Roos are the same length according to that way of sexing.

    Maybe someone will jump in here that knows the breed and can give a definite on the sex.

    Looks like golden sexlinks to me.

    I think some people call them golden comets?

    Gold or red sex links have a million different names. Its a rhode island red mix. I have one. She's red. They have gold too. That's what they look like ...
