    This is Mable and her baby... Not sure if this is actually *her* baby, as we have Barred Rock and Speckled Sussex hens as well. She is a Red Sexlink (Golden Comet or whatever else you want to call her...) Roo is a Speckled Sussex, and to me baby looks like a Red Sexlink female- but I didn't think that was a possible combination! I do have other pictures but this is the best one (the stripe on her back is symmetrical on the other side) Any ideas would be helpful, we're new to the chicken biz ;)

    IDK, the Speckled Sussex chicks on the link look a bit darker than your chick does, and it sure doesn't look like a Barred Rock! Since the Sexlink is really a mixed breed, any offspring could favor one or another of the breeds involved in the original cross.
