    Can a Rhode Island Red chick have stripes down its back? I'm just trying to figure out which chicks are which.

    If a RIR chick has a darker red dot/splotch on the back of its head then it is a girl. They don't really have stripes though...

    [​IMG] (the one at the front-right facing the wrong way is a RIR girl. also, the one at the front-left facing the wrong way is a female too.)

    jaimemcdonald, I think the easiest way to post pictures here is with something like imgur.com That's the easiest place I've found. Upload your photos there and they give you the link to paste here.
