  3. I agree with Mountain Peeps. The Red Sex Link is sometimes referred to as Red Star, also.

    I also agree with Mountain Peeps guesses, at least regarding the Red Sex-Links. I'm not so sure on the rooster. He does look like an Orpington, but I can't decide whether he looks more like a light colored Blue Orpington or a Lavender Orpington.

    Yes. Golden comets and Red sexlinks, aka red stars, are all the same thing.
