What breed is this chicken? I thought Welsummer, but now I'm not sure

    I got this chicken in a mixed batch of "brown egg layer" chicks. As a chick, it was a rust color and then developed black streaks. (I included two pictures of it as a chick below)

    It's about 22 weeks old now. In the photo, it's standing next to a red sex link that's about 2 weeks younger for size reference.

    In the last picture the hen with a Black tail looks to be a Production Red and the Hen with the White tail is a sex-link.
