    There are probably a few breeds that look that way as chicks, but I'm not certain. Maybe when it starts getting some feathers, it will be easier to tell.

    It seems a bit dark for a BO? My BO chicks were very pale yellow.

    I have a RI 3 day old that is super light and looks pretty similar, although last year's RI was much darker and redder.

    Here is a pic of my RIR that just hatch on 3-6-09. Does it look like that?

    BTW...did you hatch it? If so, what color was the egg? this will help determining the breed.

    Yes, I hatched the egg and the egg was brown. I know that the hens are golden comets. I don't know the breed of the rooster.

    looks like it could be an RIR or a red sex link?

    If the hen that laid the egg is golden comet, then it is some cross of that. Not anything that can be identified with a breed name. If the rooster is a golden comet roo, it would be a 2nd generation comet, but not sexable by color.
