Are these RIR or mixes?

    The lady we bought them from just said they had RIR and RIR mixes and my husband doesn't know which ones he got. Some are darker and some are lighter and most have some pattern on their feathers or a lighter colored edge. He doesn't care because they give us eggs but I just need to know [​IMG]

    Those all look like Gold Sex Links, which would be RIR crosses. Far too light to be pure RIR. [​IMG] (Though, honestly, if he has hatchery birds, they are usually lighter than exhibition RIRs, though still not this light).
