    I got some chicks a few weeks back and they’re now 6 weeks. I was told they’re RIR but that’s definitely not the case so, any ideas?

    Where did you get them from? They are both cockerels.

    I'd definitely say they're not RIR. Did you get them from a breeder or a farm supply store?

    They have nice coloring though. Hope you can get their breed identified. I'm not good at breed guessing so I won't even try!

    Craigslist! Lol. He showed me the mother (RIR) but the father looked like some kind of leghorn/EE cross.

    They could be second generation Red Sex-link crosses...
