    I have 3 Golden Comets and they all are lighter with white feathers in the tail.

    I was waiting on the white feathers but they only have a few white wing feathers...All three were red and white as chicks..

    Pretty birds! I'd say red sex-links...which really are not much different from Golden Comets. [​IMG]

    Those look like my RIR's or they could be Production Red's.

    Here's a RIR pullet

    Oh I have to agree with thechickcrew
    . They look a lot like my RIR's. I too have two Golden Comets and they don't look anything like your photos.
    Sorry!

    Not Golden Comets, sorry. They are Red Sex Link or Production Reds, which are basically the same thing. They are great egg layers also and pretty chickens! [​IMG]

    I think they are nice looking but knew they couldn't be golden comets from all the pics I seen....They are very friendly.

    The Sex-Link breed of chickens are usually very friendly! RIR's are more stand offish and would much rather you not bother them. The only difference in the Golden Comet and the Production Red is the color of their feathers. Their personalities and egg laying ability are pretty much the same. Here's one of my golden girls to compare them to.
