    I think these chicks are 7 or 8 weeks old. They were sold to us as Rhode island Red sex linked hens. We have already named one of them "Chili Bob" cuz we don't think it is a hen.
    I can't seem to find any pics online of chickens with this reddish color and white on the sides of their faces. They are growing some light color feathers on their wings and have some dark feathers in the tail. Also their feathers do not seem sleek and smooth to me. Maybe cuz they are just growing in? Guess it does not really matter but we are just curious.

    I'm sorta new but they look a lot like my production reds that I have...mine are 17 wks now but we got them from a relative when they were about 4 wks old. If I'm right they are good egg layers so that's a plus! [​IMG]

    Thank you! I am a google search junkie and just didn't know what words to type in to find my chickens. Now I can read all about "production" chickens.
    Thanks again!
