New rescue chicken, help with breed and age? - Page 2

She looks like a Production red, or a rhode island red hen! 

Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes... That way, if they get mad, you're a mile away. AND you have their shoes.

Rhode Island Red, hatchery stock. I'd say she is this springs hatch, so 8-9ish months old. Keep her separate for at least 30 days to prevent possible spread of disease to your other chickens.

Honestly I think she looks more like a Golden Buff. Rhode Island reds... if they are a pure bread will have black tips on their tail feathers and I don't see that. Perhaps I am missing it. However they do seem to have a similar build. In this photo our chicken was only 12 weeks old. If you get her on a complete feed, and she is old enough you should see her start laying in 3-4 weeks.

Golden Buffs (aka Red sex-link, Golden Comet, Gold sex-link) are a lighter red then the bird in question, they also have some white streaks.

My phone must not be set up right. She looked brown to me. Sorry for the confusion.

Could it be a buckeye?

Hard to guess age without up close pic but loads of links on how to tell, age, sex, laying or not.

No, because Buckeyes have pea combs.

Her legs look white.  Is there any chance she could be a hatchery quality chocolate Orpington?  She looks brown to me.
