    Hi, we just got our first egg from Ginger this morning! We were expecting blue or green since we were told she was an EE'er. Maybe not? These pics are from June & July. She is bigger and her comb and wattle are bigger and red now. Legs are yellow. We got her at 12 weeks old from a guy who said she was an EE and he got a bunch of them at Tractor Supply.

    That's looks like a golden comet to me. We have 4 and they lay brown eggs

    She looks like a Gold/Red sex link actually. She's not a EE.

    Oh, thanks for the replies! Yes, I looked those breeds up and she appears to be a Golden/Red Sex Link (also heard they can be called Golden Comet too). Regardless of what breed she is, she is a great chicken! She is our favorite as she has the most personality and is very friendly. We had the others (1 white leghorn and 2 SL Wyandottes) 2 weeks before getting her.

    She is definitely a Red Sex Link pullet. Golden Comet is one of many labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links. Red Sex Links are egg laying machines. :eek:)

    Laying machine, that will work! I treat them very well for their daily giving!
