    Mine didn't have that kind of barring that you see in the wing, but I only raised the one batch, so I don't know if that is always the case.

    looks like my 2 chicks that everyone told me were considered production reds (possibly nhr or rir) but both of mine turned out to be roos. I had 11 of assorted reds, and those two were the only ones with dark coloration like that.....and they are both roos. good luck!!

    Buff chicks - soon to be chickens.

    Maybe Cinnamons or Bronze or... does it really matter?
