    I'm pretty sure about these guys, but I wanted the professional opinion before I made any permanent arrangements...

    We got them at 2 weeks old and were hoping for some eggs someday....but thankfully we aren't banking on that for our survival right now!

    lol, that's hilarious. We were pretty sure that was the case, but are new to chickens. Our neighbor has a RIR hen that is a little older and laying eggs, and her comb and wattles are grown out so I got confused and figured I should hold on to these guys a little longer to make sure. Then when I noticed those tail feathers, and the fact that the girl will perch while the others square off like a bunch of teenage boys, I was pretty sure. Thanks for the help.

    #6 is your only Hen..
    And I would say that they are a Rhode Island Red cross and not pure RIR's...
