    I'm pretty sure it's a girl because she already has huge wing feathers.. I'm also guessing it's a white type of chicken.

    She looks like she could be a Red Sex Link, she should be a pullet from her color. Here's a picture of mt RSL when she was a chick:

    I agree, she looks like a female red sex link. They go by many different names depending upon the hatchery and what breeds were used (Red Sex Link, Red Star, Gold Star, Gold Comet, Cherry Egger, etc.) They are hybrids and not a breed.

    She'll grow up to be basically red/gold with white lacing and splashes in her wing tips and tail and often around the neck. Very pretty birds too.


    She'll be a great layer of medium brown to rich brown large eggs.
    Red Sex Links also are friendly and curious birds. I really enjoy them in my flock.

    You can see some good photos of what she'll look like at Meyer hatchery below.

    X4, she looks like a Red Sex-Link. You'll get plenty of large eggs from her! I have a friend who has a Red Sex-Link, and her bird lays nearly every day.

    She is passing away at the moment :( Very lifeless and won't open her eyes. So sad, I wished to see her grow up.

    So sorry about your chick, it is hard to lose them no matter the age.
