how old is this bird? if she's of egg-laying age, maybe it's just that she's about to start laying? mine get very red wattles just before they start to lay :)

I'll go out on a limb and assume it came from a hatchery and is over 4 months old. That would make her a red sex link hen getting ready to lay.

The hatcheries all have different names for their red sex links, so she could have had a name like something like Red Star, Golden Buff, or Golden Comet listed like in the TSCs around here, or just Production Red when you bought her.
