    I got his girl yesterday from a Mennonite farm nearby. Unsure of her age, hatched sometime this passed spring. Few questions; what breed(s) you think she is? How old would you guess? And do you think that little hooked beak of hers will be a problem? Do you think it would be ok for me to trim it?

    Red sex link, the white under the red gives her away.

    Yes red sex-link roosters are mostly white or a creamy color. And you could trim her beak, just a quick snip. Or if she's free-ranging now and wasn't before it might wear down on it's own quick.

    I have a hen that looks to be similar... she's at 26 weeks. I'd guess she's 5-6 months... [​IMG] Very pretty girl.
