Noticed some differences in one of my "hens" today...
There is a lot more redness... Around her eyes and ears???
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
She, just close to egg laying if not already. If she came from a hatchery, it is a red sex link and is guaranteed to be a hen anyways.
Ya, she looks like a red sex link just getting ready to start laying.
Thanks so much... I just hadn't noticed her "ears" getting so red... And around her eyes.... Thank you so much!!!!!
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.
My hubby and son got them for me from tractor supply Easter weekend.
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.
