Could you help me determine the breed of this hen?

    I have a pretty little pullet that I bought as a chick at the local farmers market. She was sold to me as a New Hampshire Red but she has a lot of white plumage. Is she a New Hampshire, something else, or just a mutt?

    She looks like a Red Star commonly known as Cinnamon Queens, Golden Comets, Red SExlinks, and etc... They are great layers of brown to dark brown eggs! :)

    A mutt. But a lovely one! Perhaps some sort of red/amber sex link.

    Red Sex-link hen, which is a hybrid breed of chicken known for laying lots of large brown eggs.

    She's a Red Sex-Link, also known as a Red Star, Red Star Sex-Link, Cinnamon Queen, and Golden Comet. Red Stars are hybrids between a "red" rooster (like a Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire Red), and a silver hen (White Plymouth Rock and Silver-Laced Wyandottes are two birds that are used to create the Red Sex-Link).
