Thanks for the advice on identifying with a red comb. I have sex links that I know are roos but a couple of "Reds" (whatever they are) and two have combs but are very light cream color. I thought they might be roos but they aren't doing any chest butting and their combs are not even pink like the SL's so maybe not. I bought them as pullets so maybe they all are.

I am the original Red Neck Woman, the Wildbunch AKA my children, and my husband have recently moved to the boonies. 3 1/2 acres with 3 ponds and surrounded by woods.

Thank you! That is great info to have for next year...
