    These are three week old chicks.... I think three of them are RIR and the yellowish one is a Buff Orpington. Please clue me into what GENDER you think they are!

    RIR? Baby 1 or 2, they both look alike!

    Baby 1 or 2 also, different view.

    RIR?? Baby #3 has much less feathering and almost no "butt" feather.

    Buff Orpington? Less feathers that Baby #1 and #2

    Productions reds, and likely buff rock - not an orpington. Look at the leg color - yellow [​IMG]

    The man I purchased the eggs from said it could be a Red/Buff Cross, sound possible? And if so does that mean it is a RIR/Buff cross?
