There is a very good possibility that your chicken is a New Hampshire cockerel.... His tail hasn't grown in quite yet, I would say...

Edit* how old is it? The comb is making me think roo but the tail has no sickle feathers yet.... Age would help smile.png

3rd generation of Colorado ranchers, raising organic alfalfa, corn, Red Angus cattle, Suffolk sheep and of course, chickens! Comitted to a lifetime of health without chemicals, I am entirely dependent on what God has given me to nurture soil, plant, and animal. Sharing...

Yes, it's a sex link, star, whatever name the hatchery uses. There is a lot of Leghorn in some hatchery birds. That comb is a prime example, most red sex links don't have that uber comb but do show pinched upright Leghorn type tails.

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.

With that white underfluff and white feathers in her tail, she's definitely a Red Star (Red Sex Link) pullet. Even if she weren't laying eggs, her sex would be obvious by her color. Male Red Sex Links (Red Stars) are primarily white with a smattering of red feathers in the saddle area. Red Stars are laying machines. You should be getting loads of large brown eggs from that girl. :o)

Her comb looks big enough to explode.  Maybe she had botox or whatever the Hollywood crowd uses to pump things up.

Looks like a Red Star hen to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
