    They do look like sexlinks to me, too (hybrid layers). Definitely not Buff Orpingtons.

    BO's don't look anything like that.

    Golden Sexlinks tend to be a little more golden through my eyes. Those look like Red Sexlinks.

    Quote:The name "Golden Sexlinks" is not much more than a "brand name". Both red sexlinks and golden sexlinks are the result of a gold roo and a silver hen. The OP's hens are red sexlinks.
