    Got this girl at co-op, she's now about 9 weeks. Was in a bin marked buckeye, but I don't believe she is.. There were a few varieties of sex-links too in other bins.

    Any idea on breed? Or if she's sex-linked? 3rd picture is her sister in the background, they are identical.

    I'd call her a production Red.

    Could be... But production reds should be a little darker. However this varies from hatchery to hatchery of course. With the lighter color and the black tipped hackle feathers and black tail feathers. So more closely resembles a New Hampshire Red.

    Yeah, it is light for a production red, and I got one of them too and it is the deeper red(from the same hatchery). Not familiar with New Hampshire reds, I'll keep that in mind, thankya.
