    I can't tell what type of bird this is and I believe it is either a Red Sex Link, Golden Comet, or Cinnamon Queen. A buddy gave me his flock and told me their breed names in the dark. Any thoughts? Thanks

    What's the difference between a comet and a sex link? These mix breeds are new to me. Thanks for the opinions!

    I believe it is what ever the hatcheries want to name them. So sex links and comets would be the same breed.

    Golden Comet is just another name for Red Sex Link.
