    Can someone tell me what kind of chicken this is?

    I bought this hen from a guy locally along with what he called barred rocks. I traded the so called barred rocks for a pure RIR Hen. The guy I traded for said that the Barred Rock were not pure but we traded anyway. One of the Barred Rocks was already laying medium sized white/white gray eggs.

    Could be a sex link. The coloring kinds looks like buff RIR but I dont think that's a breed.:/

    She has not laid an egg yet. Could it be because she is mothering that barred rock pullet/chick?

    If I were to go on color alone, the chick is a cockerel. BUT, we don't know it's age or if it is pure. It also has a pink comb. Cute though
