So a red sex link rooster - but what sex link type is the hen in question? 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Cinnamon Queen is one of a number of labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links which are produced by crossing a red gene rooster (RIR, NH, or PR) with a silver gene hen (RIW, SLW, Delaware, Light Sussex, or silver factor WPR). The only difference in these Red Sex Links is the specific red or silver gene breeds that are used in the cross but the results are basically the same--whitish male chicks and reddish (goldish) female chicks. Since Red Sex Links don't breed true the offspring of two Red Sex Links (including Cinnamon Queens) cannot be sexed by color and will just be a combination of red and white mixed breeds (barnyard mutts).

Mostly red and white birds, with the coloring not related to gender. due to the nature of dominant white, you may also wind up with barred or black in there somewhere.

Sorry to hear that - don't give up too soon, keep an eye out around the time they usually go to roost and you may catch him trying to find a way back in.

He was new and my guess was chased off. So there really is no hope lost a white one to. Jumped over the fence. Its wont live the night with the foxes out here. Good think i didnt pay for them. Since the white one was basically feral.
