Here is nugget I have no idea what she is. Can anyone help me? Thanks
She looks like a Wheaten Maran except for the leg color and the tail tip color isn't right.
Oh ya, she does look kinda like a wheaten maran!! Could she be a mix?
She also could be a straight up ISA Brown or other sex-linked egglayer. That would make more sense than an off-color Marans. Here's an ISA Brown:
hmmmmm.... that’s true.
She could be a mix because those neck feathers look like my Red Star's.
I believe she is one of the Red Sex-Link breeds, like a Golden Buff, Red Star, Golden Comet or Cinnamon Queen.
All Red Sex-Link breeds are basically cross breeds between a red-breed rooster (like a New Hampshire or Rhode Island Red) and a white or silver-breed hen (like a White Rock, Barred Rock, or Silver Laced Wyandotte). They don't breed true when bred to another Sex-Link, so can only be created by cross breeding.
Thanks for the responses. She lays a super dark egg with even darker spots.
Well, that does mean that she has a dark egg layer somewhere in her ancestry. A RSL wouldn't lay a super dark egg.
