    You all are so fantastic at quickly identifying breeds that I thought I'd throw this one out to see who can help me identify it. It was given to us by a neighbor who has no clue what she had. And I'm so new at all this that I seem to have to look at a clone of my chicken to positively identify it. Thanks!

    Looks like he might be a red sexlink rooster. Red sexlink hens are red/brown with some white feathers, and the roosters are white with some red/brown feathers.

    The others are right on the money

    Now, since you have a roo, please keep in mind that Red SLs are NOT a breed. Your boy will not produce SL chicks. They are the result of a one time cross of two pure-bred birds from seperate breeds. Any chicks that your boy produces will be a jumble of genetics, and you won't be able to tell their gender at birth.

    However, they WILL be adorable little fluffybutts [​IMG]
