    Let's have another go on the two red/brown ones! These are the two chipmunkers I bought and was told were RIR's. I questioned it and even email a pic to Ideal(the hatchery the feed store ordered). Their response was they were not sure either, but pretty positive they were not RIR's. Oops! What do you guys think?

    That one in the front looks like my Welsummer. The black one looks like a Blach Austrolorpe. Or could be a Black Giant, I think they are called. The other two look like RIR's.

    Front one I think may be a Welsummer. Black one isn't an australorp, maybe a mix. Reds, maybe sex links, im not sure. [​IMG]

    they could be a cross of a RIR, but they arent RIR
    the black one could be a Australorp

    My RIR's have tail feathers that stick up and out. Yours doesn't seem to have tail feathers. Check out the breeds on this website, I saw some pics of some chickens that didn't have tail feathers that resembles yours but I don't remember what they were.

    I think the black one is a black sex-link, at least from the picture it looks like there is some reddish gold feathering around the neck
