    They are red with some whitish feathers on the back, brown egg layers. Someone here said they bought them and I cannot remember the name of the breed. Please help!

    The Golden Comet is a buff sex-link. The chicks can be sexed by color: pullets are red and roosters are white.
    It is a result of cross breeding Rhode Island Red and a Rhode Island White. If you breed them you will not get more golden comets. They are a barnyard (mutt) chicken that lays eggs really well.
