    Hi all, I got my 4 girls on May 1st. I thought they were all RI Reds as they were all in the same group labeled RI Reds. this one dosen't quite look like a RI Red. Can anyone Identify her? I'm assuming it's a girl she's the largest, the friendliest and the most aggressive, as of now she's at the top of the pecking order. I've include pics of the yellow girl and the RI Reds. You can see the yellow has pink legs and the RI Reds have yellow legs.
    Thanks for any help.

    Mike.

    Quote:Hens also have spur buds. It looks like a pullet, but at that age, it's hard to tell with 100% certainty.

    Maybe a Cinnamon Queen...if so should be a pullet.

    She looks just like my Rhode Island Girls! Mine are at 4weeks (or so, maybe almost 5 now) and they look almost exactly like her.

    The first pic looks like a red or gold sex link to me. The leg color confuses me though. My gold sex links have yellow legs. Here is a picture I took this afternoon.
