    So, I go to the feed store to get a bigger feeder for my growing babies....AND they have babies...of course, I couldn't resist, and brought home a standard and four bantams, and I have NO idea what they are, though the feed store owner says this one is a rhode island...I don't remember seeing rhode island chicks like this before, but they are not a breed that i have...so votes? rhode island or not? if not, what else could it be?

    I also have one clean legged bantam, and three feather legged. They are going to be up here too. I wanna know what they are! I haven't had a lot of bantams before [​IMG]

    I've never seen one marked like that and my son used to raise a line of SQ RIR.

    from what im finding, the color is too light and they shouldn't be chipmunk marked but then again i've never dealt with RIRs..

    I have a speckled sussex in with my big girls right now...she was way more red when she was a baby. Here is a picture of her:

    She is the baby sitting directly on top of the blue thing. The chick next to her was one of my BLRW
