    Does anyone know what kind of chicken is this? We purchased Rhode Island Reds and Red Sexlinks but she is completely different. She is the sweetest and lays the biggest eggs out of all of our chickens. Would love to know what she is so we can purchase more. Thanks for the help!

    Actually i think it is a red sex link. Since they are a mix of chickens, there can be variables in each individual depending on which birds were crossed.

    She's one of your RSLs -- because they are a mixed breed bird their appearance can vary greatly from one bird to the next.

    Thank you so much! Just wasn't sure since she was so different from all of our other girls.

    Yes, she's a Red Sex-Link. Some Red Sex-Links have more white than others, while others have more red and look different.
