    I don't know. Someone said it might be a production red or a red sex link.

    I want to say hen but it's legs are super thick! I would wait another week or two. I had a "Hen" that was about that age and then bam, full comb and wattle. lol

    Looks like a Red sex-link (aka Golden Comet, ISA Brown, ISA Red, Golden sex-link, Red Star, ect.) pullet, cockerels of this breed will be white with rusty colored patches by the wings.

    It's a red sex link pullet. If a rooster it would be white.
