So I'm about to get some more hens and I put an ad up on craigslist and a lady near me who doesn't know much about chicken breeds said that she has "reds" available and that she got them from tractor supply. She asked the person working there if they were rhode island reds and they did not know. She did mention that the birds are two months old and have a "lighter red" color, not quite like the dark rusty red color of RIR's. I'm wondering if these chicks might be red stars, or are they really RIR's? I haven't seen them yet. I'm just going off of what I know. Does tractor supply sell both RIR and Red Stars? Please help.
