    looks like a red sex-link to me as well.

    We have RIR, New Hampshire, RSL etc.

    it looks a little darker than a red sex-link. It is possible that she's a mix?

    Quote:Red sex links are mixes and the amount/quality of red can vary greatly depending on the parent birds used.

    I'd say she is a golden comet (which is a red sex link). Great layers, sweet tempered, lovely hens!
