    Can anyone tell me her breed? Currently in quarantine. Got her from a friend, but not sure of her breed. Similar to my golden comets, but more buff in color.

    I think she is an Amber Link.

    Need a full body shot in natural lighting. I can't be sure but she looks like she might be a mixed breed.

    She's a mixed breed; possibly an Amber Link. A profile pic in better lighting could settle that question.

    Ty after the two responses I looked up that breed and I do believe that is what she is. I can snap a better picture when I let her roam a little later today.

    Thank you everyone. I do need a different pic, but after the responses I did get I looked up the amber link breed and I am pretty sure that is what she is. When I let her roam a little later I will get a better picture.

    Amberlinks aren't really a breed. They are a cross breed, bred for production purposes.

    I figured they were similar to my red sex linked

    Amber Links are a reverse Red Sex Link bred by crossing a silver gene rooster X a red gene hen instead of a red gene rooster X a silver gene hen as in the RSLs. Unlike RSLs, Amber Links cannot be sexed by color from hatching, but instead are sexed by feather development.
