    Hi, BYC Friends!
    Could anyone offer suggestions as to what breed this pullet is? She is about 6 mos old. Thanks for your help! :)

    Thanks, Angelicsi!
    Are yours good layers? Egg size? Color? (sry, lots of questions) We just got started in April, so I am trying to learn so much about these. We have two of these, but were unsure of the breed. I appreciate your help! :)

    Mine is my best layer. I love her eggs. I get a large brown egg, sometimes speckled from her 6- 7 days a week. :) she's really friendly too.

    I'm not sure what she is. Her coloring looks right for a Red Sex-Link, but the body type is wrong. Red Sex-Links tend to be slimmer, not as deep. She might just be a mix.

    Oh, yay! Our two are the tamest/friendliest of our girls, too. Nice to know that they will be good layers. Thank you, again!

    I would say she is a sexlink. Great birds.

    Wyandottes7,
    She was fluffing up a bit when I took this photo. She is not quite as fluffy as she looks in this pic. I will try to post another pic.
    Thanks!

    Her egg is the bottom right. Sometimes she throws double yolkers :) (middle egg on 2nd pic)
