    Does not have the deep, rich color of a true RIR. Hatchery stock? Barnyard bred bird? It is likely a production red. These can be excellent laying hens. Looks for all the world like a pullet to me.

    Definitely a pullet. Definitely not a RIR. Like what others have already mentioned...red sex linked like a red star, or just some mutt. Will probably be an excellent layer nonetheless.

    most sex links don't have the black neck feathers this one does. Looks like some version of a new hampshire possibly. pretty

    I thought production reds were a different breed all together than sex links?
