    This is on going.
    She is a dark colorec red hen,but lays a buff Orpington colored egg.
    I'm thinking the Red sexlink (original).

    She isn't very bossy,of course birds are dying,so soon she will be at the end once more.
    Her attitude has straightened up,and she is being bossed with new attitude..

    If your hen has only one white feather, I think its a Production Red rather than a Red Sex Link which normally a large number of white feathers in the tail area and white underfluff. I can't see her tail in the pic, but what I can see of her makes me think Production Red as well. She should be an excellent layer. :eek:)

    P.S. Because of the addition of White Leghorn blood in their background to increase egg production, Production Reds will occasionally get a white feather or two that bleeds through.
