    When I got her she was light yellow with an almost white head and white feathers on the tip of her wings. Now that she is older she has been getting red feathers in. Anyone know what breed it might be?[​IMG]

    She may very well be a red sex link.

    That's what I was thinking too. So that would mean my shes a he? Aren't the females reddish when they're chicks and the males light yellow?

    I agree with Sourland--she does appear to be a Red Sex-link. And the red feathers mean she is probably a she. [​IMG]

    Looks like a possible Red Sex-LInk (also known as Red Stars, Cinnamon Queens, and Golden Comets). Female Red Sex-Links have mostly red feathers, but can get some white ones. Your bird is definitely a pullet if she's a Red Sex-Link, as she has lots of red feathers. Males are mostly white.

    That makes me happy to hear. My only worry was I might have a roo. I'm not allowed to have one in city limits. Thanks so much for your replies!
