And why her comb is huge ?
There is a very good possibility that your chicken is a New Hampshire cockerel.... His tail hasn't grown in quite yet, I would say...
Edit* how old is it? The comb is making me think roo but the tail has no sickle feathers yet.... Age would help
No shes laying eggs
Yes, it's a sex link, star, whatever name the hatchery uses. There is a lot of Leghorn in some hatchery birds. That comb is a prime example, most red sex links don't have that uber comb but do show pinched upright Leghorn type tails.
Lol yeah that's why I had to do a double take and a double edit.... I have not seen such a BIG comb on a Red Star hen lol... Well, mine anyway... That's one huge comb!
Yep then, Red Star would be what she is
With that white underfluff and white feathers in her tail, she's definitely a Red Star (Red Sex Link) pullet. Even if she weren't laying eggs, her sex would be obvious by her color. Male Red Sex Links (Red Stars) are primarily white with a smattering of red feathers in the saddle area. Red Stars are laying machines. You should be getting loads of large brown eggs from that girl. )
Her comb looks big enough to explode. Maybe she had botox or whatever the Hollywood crowd uses to pump things up.
Looks like a Red Star hen to me.
