What is my RIR crossed with?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a 20 ish week RIR cross named Frenchy. I got her from TSC they said she was a Colombian rock RIR mix, I did some research about Columbian Rock's they are white and black. Frenchy is a Brown/ dark red color with " burnt spots " or big speckles on her wings. Nothing close to a Columbian! I need help what could she be?!

Welcome to BYC  - it would be helpful if you would take and post a photo of the bird so that we can see her.  TSC generally sells hatchery sourced birds, so the only "mixes" that would come into play would be sex links (which if the RIR is the male and the Columbian Rock was the female, this would be a red sex link) and Easter Eggers (sometimes sold as Ameraucana by hatcheries/retail stores). 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

sounds like she's a sex link. If the father was the Colombian Rock and the mother was the RIR, then the female offspring would be red/gold and the males silver. I'd expect the females to have a red Colombian type marking, with a dark or black collar and tail. 

 

If you post a pic we can confirm.
