    They're absolutely the cutest together! The RIR will freak out everytime we pull the sebright out to hold "her" and won't stop until we put the sebright down!

    Let me know what you think!!

    (Sorry the first pics are blurry... that sebright is flighty and quick!)

    i would love it if you guys were right about our little RIR being a pullet! [​IMG]

    i mean, we'd keep the RIR anyways, even if he was a roo, but it would be that much easier if he were a she!

    WAIT... is my RIR possibly not an RIR?? i was just looking at some pictures and i guess i assumed she/he was a RIR, but maybe not?

    could he/she be a red sex link or something else? the chick just doesn't look as DARK red as some of the other pics i'm seeing or RIR chicks.

    Quote:No, that's a RIR. It doesn't have any white in it other than those off-colored specks, but those are part of the juvenile feathers. My RIR had them. And since they came from TSC that means they came from a hatchery. So she IS a RIR, just not a very good quality one as hatchery ones tend to be more towards the productive side rather than the Standard of Perfection. Don't worry, you were right the first time.
