    I was told that 'she' is a red sexlink hen, even been identifiied by others on here as that. 6 months old now.

    What do you think?

    Sorry for the bad pics, i had to cage her to get her to stand still!

    Definitely a rooster because of the saddle feathers that are on it's tail and the hackle feathers around the neck.
