    Im pretty sure shes a hen, but this is coming from little to no chicken experience. However, i dont know what kind of hen she is. Shes grown pretty quickly, one of the two biggest of my first six chickens. I thought she was a buff oprington when she was a chick bc she was in a bin that was not labeled. But shes way darker in color than either of my other two orpingtons. Anyone have any idea? Also please check out my other thread about my other chicken being a roo or hen. Im one very confused chicken lady! :/

    Hello and [​IMG]
    We're glad you joined us!

    Your right that does look like a hen. Try posting this in the "What breed or gender is this?" forum. I'm sure you'd get a lot more helpful responses there. [​IMG]

    she is too dark for a buff orp, maybe she is a red sex link.
