I thought maybe buff Orpington but not so sure now. Maybe golden buff?..
looks like a hatchery quality new hampshire red
Generic red hatchery bird--production red, cherry egger, etc. Usually great layers, no specific breed, just high production hens that are red colored.
agree completely! she is just a red laying hen!
Yes she is one of the hatchery reds.
If that's the case probably a sex-link golden comet or what some call a red star. Great brown egg layers, just mutt chickens. A New Hampshire Red is a pure breed, and are actually lay less annually than the sex-links.
That bird isn't a sex link, they have white tips and tails and this bird is solid red.
Just a normal "Production Red". Production Reds are just red birds sold by hatcheries that lay lots of eggs. They often have some Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire in them, but aren't purebred. I bet she is (or will be) a great layer!
She looks like your average "production red" hen to me. Not a sex link of any sort; just a red bird (probably with Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire in her ancestry) that is sold by a hatchery to function as a excellent egg layer. Or, she could be a hatchery-quality "purebred" Rhode Island Red (though really, hatchery RIRs are not purebred, so they could be considered production reds, too). Whatever her exact breed is, she should still be a high-producer of large brown eggs. She's a pretty bird!
