    No, she IS a New Hampshire. Red Sex-links would have white in them.

    The first bird is my favorite breed, a mutt. The second bird is a NH.

    My red sex link doesn't have any white in her. Do they all have white? My sex link looks just like that.

    Not all Sex Links have white - It's just the golden/red sexlinks that do. And by white, it should show up faintly in the neck, tail, and undercolor.

    The top hen is a mutt, likely a Wheaten colored breed x a Production Red.

    The next hen is a hatchery based New Hampshire.
