    I've been told she is a red production hen (she started roosting on my trash can here in the middle of town so we decided to [​IMG]keep her) but she looks to me like she could be a red star, rir, or even a golden comet. Any guesses??

    Looks like a production red to me. Definitely does not look like a RIR or a sex link (which both red star and golden comet are red sex links)

    She looks like a PR to me. Definitely not a full RIR. It's possible she could be a red star, or golden comet as both are also RIR hybrids as well, but her coloring looks a bit off for both of those, IMO. She looks sweet. We really like our PR. They are amazingly friendly chickens when they become attached to you.

    Probably a Production Red.

    She looks like a production red to me. The darker color on the tail is the best sign. She looks to maybe be molting, leaving a lot of white fluff exposed to give the look of a red sex link, but that's temporary.

    X7 on Production Red hen. You should get lots of nice, large, brown eggs out of her. :eek:)
