I read through all the posts here. We bought eggs simply for getting laying hens and chose a farm that had BR and RIR. At this time of year they let all the chickens be together. We don't really care since like I said we'll be keeping all the hens no matter what they are and decide on roos later. Here is a picture of what we have as of this morning. Just wondering what you can tell me about what we type of chickens we might have knowing that the roosters could be BR or RIR. I'm really just beginning to learn about chicken genetics.
The reddish brown should be RIR, right?
The all black are black sex link?
The ones with the stripes down their back? Are they a cross?
