    Someone is trying to convince me this is a Red sex link rooster. Can you all tell me what breed you believe this chicken is? Thank you in advance :)

    Definitely not a Red Sex Link rooster. If it was a rooster it would be white with brown on his back.

    He looks like my Production Red hen. I'm not sure what breed though.

    It's a hatchery Rhode Island Red cockerel. Red sex link roosters are mainly white with reddish wings. The little pullet behind the bird in question looks to be a red sex link pullet.

    thanks everyone. I explained to the person with the chicken that it is a R.I.R./Production Red, and there is no possible way it is a red sex link rooster.
