    My wife and I began our chicken hobby this past spring when everyone was giving away chicks when they stopped being so cute. We got 13 birds for free to start or flock. Problem is we didn't know what they were and they weren't sexed. We have figured out all the breeds except for these red and white hens (not the Orpingtons). Any idea what need she is? I guess she could be a cross of some sort.

    She is a Red Star also called a Red sexlink, Cinnamon queen, etc. They are great at laying eggs mine layed an egg almost every day even through the winter. [​IMG]

    They are Red Sex-Links, also called Red Stars, Red Star Sex-Links, Cinnamon Queen, etc. You should get lots of large brown eggs from them. I have a friend who has a Red Sex-Link, and her hen has only skipped on day of laying since she began laying last fall.
