    This hen was supposed to be a RIR i bought as day old along with one other, the other has signature black tail tips but this hen looks more like a warren or a ranger or something, what do you guys think?

    Doesn't look like my RIR either. Closer to my red sexlinks though. Does she have any white in her?

    she does in her tail and a few flecks in the rest of her body, I'm positive she's not a RIR but i'm baffled as thats what i was told she was so now i have no idea!

    Tail feathers look white? So she's a red sex link.

    Red body and white caboose is a dead giveaway for a golden/red sex link. Congrats, they are wonderful layers,and have sweet personalities!

    They are always a trip with their personalities and I think they really compliment a egg layer flock. Hope this makes you smile vrs. being upset [​IMG] I lost my only Sex link a few months ago. she was 6 yro and she was the most talkative hen I had. She also would make me smile after watching her for a few mins if I was sad.

    Enjoy [​IMG]
