    It's really difficult to see at that size. Could you also post it here in a comment so we can see your chicken better?

    We need a better pic of the bird, sorry. Profile shot including legs and head is best. All I can say from this is a hatchery Red type hen--could be production red, hatchery RIR, or even red sex link if she has white tips and tail.

    I enlarged your photo. Yes, you have a pretty typical red sex-link hen there. Looks like a whole flock of them in the back ground. Very nice birds and excellent layers.

    Looks like a Red Sex-Link to me.
