    These (hopefully) girls are about ten weeks old. They were supposed to be RIR but they look light to me. Any thoughts? [​IMG]

    THey look like production reds to me. Similar to RIR, but lighter in color and bred more for egg production rather than type.

    Probably hatchery RIR's , or production reds....ie generic red layers.

    And they do both look like girls. The boys usually aren't too shy!
