    The chicks seems to me as red sex link chicks, the silver are males and the gold ones are females, the hen green/ gray shanks confuse me, I can not tell .

    The hen is a game bird mix and is wheaten in color. Are the chicks hers?

    I had two "game" eggs from the lady who has this hen. When hatched, one looked like a game bird the other looked like the silver ones above. I was curious what the heck they really were lol

    If the chicks are biologically hers, they can't be sex linked. She's gold, not silver, so no sex linkage.

    I agree she looks like a wheaton game hen. Without knowing possible sires, it's impossible to say what the babies are at this stage.
