Name that breed~

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey! I got a few chicks but have no idea what breed they are! Maybe RIR?



This one is a bit darker than the rest though...




Thanks for any info! Honestly I want to get some speckled Sussex or a gold laced whyndottes so I'll probably sell a few of these ones! Super cute though!

Impossible to be sure at this age but I would say likely RIR.

Likely either Rhode Island Reds or Production Reds. From where did you get them?

If they came from a tractor supply they are likely Production Reds. Technically speaking, there's very little or no difference between hatchery quality RIRs and Production Reds as both of them lack the deep body, dark mahogany feathering, and profuse black tail feathering of heritage RIRs sold by reputable breeders. If they are female, they should be excellent layers for you. :o)

I agree.

Any idea what breed this may be? Are there chicken "mutts"? When I asked the old-timer who gave them to me, he said "well, they're white and kindly speckled I reckon". smile.png

:welcome

It looks like Cochin or Brahma mix (so yes you could call it a mutt).
