    The guy we got them from said they're rir but I've been reading the forums and I don't think so.

    Yes, they appear to be red sex links. Rhode Island reds shouldn't have any white on them.

    With that white underfluff and white feathers in the tail, you definitely have Red Sex Links. RSLs are laying machines. You should get loads of large brown eggs from those girls. :eek:)

    Welp, bad news they aren't RiR but Red sex-links, good news? Pullets who should be laying soon and probably out of your house with how good of layers they are!

    Start painting your "eggs for sale," signs so you'll be ready when they are.
