    The red ones are red sex links. I can't see the rooster well enough to say what he is!

    The rooster is a mixed breed; possibly an Easter Egger. The red ones are all Red Sex Link pullets. RSLs are also marketed by hatcheries under a variety of other labels including Golden Comet, Red Star, Gold Star, Brown Sex Link, Cinnamon Queen, Golden Buff, Isa Brown, Babcock Brown, Red Shaver, Brown Shaver, Gold Sex Link, Warrens, etc.

    I know I don't know.Lol I'm new to this. we had floods from the rain we had, and a hen ended up in my yard.I reached out to my neighbors and no one has chickens. I Think someone let them loose in the woods in front of our place. I hear a rooster in the woods crowing but can never locate him. I would like to know the breed of her i got. I've been taking very good care of her for 2 months now, and no eggs.I made her a laying box and feed her laying mash. Please help someone.lol[​IMG]

    And you won't get eggs. It's a red sex link cockerel. Someone probably realized they had 2 roosters and dumped thrm.

    I question if that is a male, it does not have saddle feathers. comb and body look female.

    I don't think it's male because I've never heard it crow. And when I feed her she whines and bocks.lol
