    I have a hen. Who, for most of her life, I thought was a red sexlike. But now I'm not so sure. If anyone can confirm it, or tell what she actually is, I would most appreciate it. I will post a pic of her in a moment.

    Not a great picture to tell from but she kind of looks like a New Hampshire to me because of the black tips on her tail. Maybe someone else will offer their opinion.

    Thanks. She is darker though, and has some feathers that have a shiny look to them, like that of some roosters feathers.
