    Looks like a Golden Comet to me..they are a sex link cross between a Rhode Island Red and a Leghorn..excellent layers, huge eggs for a smallish bird!

    She looks like a regular red sex link to me. A hybrid between a red and white standard breeds. Hens come out this color and males are mostly white. They can be sexed by color after they hatch.

    That's a sex-link. Judging by the comb, it's a leghorn RIR hybrid.
