    She looks like a gold top, a cross between a silkie rooster and a light sussex hen.

    Just thought I'd add...they're sex linked too, gold hens and white roos.

    Agree with Kathryn, that's the most likely cross.

    It means that you can tell which chicks are cockerels or pullets from hatch. The different sexes either feather in differently and have different colors of chick down, or they feather in at different rates. Sex-Linking makes it much easier to sex chicks.
