    I think a poor (i.e. hatchery) quality white-laced red cornish is a possibility too. It looks like my WLR Cornish hen did at that age.

    Comb will be the deciding factor. If it's a straight comb, it's a sexlink but if it's a modified pea type comb (which it looks like to me), it's a cornish.
