    Hello everyone, new here to BYC. Me and my Fiance got a chicken about 3 months ago, and we aren't quite sure what breed it is, or if it is a hen or rooster. We think it is a red sex link rooster, but not quite positive. Here is a few pictures of it.

    Thanks![​IMG]

    Thank you! I have 2 chicks (yellow red ones) that looked similar to that one when it was small. I bet they are the same.[​IMG]

    Thanks everyone!

    I have another little chick I will post later this evening. Got it from a lady and she was saying it was an Araucana, but it doesnt look like one to me[COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]. Perhaps its an EE.[/COLOR]

    Most hatcheries, who sell their birds to farm stores where most people buy their birds, Say they are selling Auracanas, Ameraucana, or Americanas, but are actually just selling EEs. Unless they bought it from a breeder, it's probably an EE.
