    RC Rhode Island Whites- how do they look to you?!?!

    I have some RIW's that hatched in March of this year. I can't seem to find any info on-line about them, not even a pic to compare them to. I love them not matter what but I'd like to know if their quality is good enough to sell hatching eggs or to even show them Thanks!!!

    What is this guy?

    I got this guy out of the Barred Rock bin at the feed store last summer. I just always assumed that he was a BR but now realize that was wrong. What the heck is he?! He has a few rusty feathers on his back and the white is more like a cream color. Thanks for looking!!
