    What is our Chickadilly? Looks like The Little Red Hen to me. Am I correct? She's 7 weeks old.

    I had to cut and paste the link and then take out the space to get it to work.

    I think it is probably a Red Sex Link because there are some spots of white showing. That is common with Red Sex Links.

    Where did you get her?

    Sorry about the broken link. Not sure what happened. I got her from a local feed store that sold her as a RIR.

    The bird is a generic hatchery red--production red, cherry egger, etc.

    Was that pic taken at 7 weeks? I'm kinda getting my roo-dar pinged....[​IMG]
