    they could be new hampshire reds...but i think my 3 others that i still have to post on here are nhr
    these could be production...all i know is i got them out of a bin from tsc marked mixed reds....
    i went back the following week and got golden comets...posted 2 mixed reds @ 7 weeks old and was told they were the same...they dont look the same now...nor did they when they were fuzzy butts

    no ideas what these are???
