    I know females red and males white. This one is supposed to be female, but it's more tan. Male or female? Less than a week old.

    It is neither a male or female red sex link. You got a different breed. Not sure what. I'm not familiar with Buff Orps, but that would be my guess.

    Possibly. But I'm guessing it's quite a bit lighter than your RIR. Yes???

    Thanks all. Glad it's a buff over a RIR. Hope she lays better than the buffs that my mother and friend owned. They are sweet though.

    Not RSL and not rir. This bird is feathering in buff. What color are the legs? What comb bud type does out have?

    I'm not fond of BO myself. Too much bird for not enough egg. Too much broody. And I prefer a darker colored bird. But, I'm glad BO's do have their fan club!

    Looks like a Buff Orpington to me as well. Not a Sexlink or a Rhode Island Red for sure.
