    I bought my chicks from the TSC from the assorted red's ben. All the ones in there looked the same, but different ages (some had the start of wing feathers) I was hoping to get RIRs, but I really don't know what I ended up with. Does anyone know what some kinds are that could be considered "Assorted Reds?" Thanks!

    I am having a hard time finding chick pictures. Does anyone know where I could find a picture of a 2 week old rhode island red and maybe some other red chicks? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Could be Rhode Island Reds, could be New Hampshire. Could you post pictures of yours on here to see if anyone here can identify them?

    Id agree with RIR's Hamps or Sex-Links.

    Yep thems is chicks all right.

    In the pics, they actually look more like buffs of some kind.

    It is hard to tell on this one, if they are RIRs, then they are pretty light. I would guess that they would be sex-links, but I don't really know for sure. Hopefully someone on here will.

    My RIR chick is much darker than that. But I don't have any experience with any other types of red chicks.

    Could be Cinnamons or something like that. Could also be random Buffs, too.
    I say that because the folks at TSC are not renowned for being knowledgeable, or even reliable. In their fetid little minds, anything that aint black or white just might be considered 'red'.
    After all they are re-market retailers, not breeders.
