    Looks like a Red Sex-link pullet to me. If it is a Red Sex-link, it is definitely a pullet, since that hybrid is sex-linked (males and females of different colors).

    Red sex links have gold/red females and white/silver males.

    black sex links have barred males, with white spots on their heads. Females are non-barred, with solid dark heads at hatch.
