    I've heard the hen is a Rhode Island Red... But, what breed rooster?

    This is what our little Pineapple is starting to look like... "She's" the feathers that are coming in are mostly white but splashed with red. So weird. She's either going to be a he or will be a gorgeous hen like this. I hope for a nice healthy, quiet bird of either sex!

    You are correct about the hen. A Light Sussex rooster is crossed with a RIR hen to produce Amberlink chicks.
