    I bought my chicks from TS was told they are (4)red sex link chicks (which are a redish brown color) and 2 white sex link chicks all pullet the supposed white chicks are yellow in color at this time. Is there such a thing as a white sex link hen? From all my googeling I am thinking no, and now have no idea if TS knows what they are selling. As I am a novice and know zero to nothing about breeds of chickens some help would be appreciated with this. I have read up on the sex link gene and it can be a little confusing but believe I understand the basic ideal. Advice plz and thank you sorry won't let me post a pic...

    The white ones could be roosters, otherwise there's an amber sex link that is whitish. But without photo I can only guess.

    They could be Amberlinks. They're not color sex linked, they're feather sexable per the website.

    Or, they could be male red sex links. Really no way to tell until they grow out some.
