    Got these at 4 weeks They're Around 4-5 Months now,really paid no attention to the fact they may not be RIR until I started just looking up breed standards and noticed....0 pics of RIR heritage or production type had this coloration on them that I saw!!!

    Any help with what I've got here would be great!! [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Possibly Welsummer cockerels. Definitely males. And younger than 4 months.

    Those are absolutely no doubt about it Welsummer. I raise tuns of different breeds including RIR so I would defiantly know.

    Thanks,I actually contacted the place where I got them from and the gentlemen apologized and reminded me that when I picked them up his wife was running things while he was at chick days(which I remember).Anyway he apologized and told me keep them and swing by sometime this week and he'd give 6-8 3 month BO or RIR...good people
