rhode island reds or red sexlinks?
The one in front looks lik ea boy
They're production reds.
I don't know what a production red looks like, but those are too light to be RIR if the color is true. The heads I can see are 2 hens and a roo.
They look like my Golden Comets
Thanks it is driving me crazy not knowing what they are!
Well, if they are production reds or rhode island reds - you'll get tons of eggs from them!
Could they be New Hampshire Reds? Those are lighter in color than RIRs. I can't tell if the combs are single or not.
Probably most likely production reds/golden comets/red sex links - they have many different names.
Golden comets have dominant white so they are going to have a tail that contains white feathers and or white in the wings.
Production red are a taller bird with an angular shaped breast like a New Hampshire. They can be a dark red but are not shaped like a RIR.
New hampshire are lighter colored and the color will vary over different parts of the body. They stand taller than a RIR.
Rhode island red should be a brick shaped bird. Like a head, neck and legs glued to a big rectangular brick. They should be the same color (except the black in the wings and tail) over the body of the bird.
Hope one NHR and the other does have white tips and the reddish one has black on it too. Are they both roo's?
