Is this normal for a Rhode Island Red / "Hatchery Red"?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

 

 

I got 3 reds "advertised as RIR" from a local lady trying to get rid of some of her straight run.  I noticed that 1 of the chicks has a fully brown head (Chick on the far left in bottom picture) and blue eyes?  Is that normal or acceptable for a supposed Rhode Island Red (even though we know it is just a production red). Or is it something else like an RSL?

Normal.

OK, cool thank you.   Out of the three reds I chose, that is the one which I am confident is a pullet, so glad to hear she may actually be within the correct breed.

It's normal for a Production Red.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
