RIR's Well at least that is what the lady from the local farmers market told me they were. I don't really mind what kind they are, just as long as they are healthy. We have never had chickens before and it has been a great learning experience for my daughters. we are just waiting and waiting and waiting. Thanks for the encouragement.

The best hatch I have had (in my limited experience), was my very first one. It was 30 eggs from the local Farmer's Market, and I had a great variety of chicks! I loved that hatch! Some starting chirping on Day 19, and they were all out and fluffy on or before day 21. I gave all those chicks to an older lady who had lost her flock to predators. She adores them.
Good luck to you on your first hatch!
