    New to the world of chickening. I was "gifted" a hen and rooster a little before I was ready, but had to trade the roo as my town doesn't want them. I love having the girls though! I literally spend hours watching chicken TV!

    I think they are both Rhode Island Reds. But I honestly can't distinguish between those and Buck-Eyes. and they love watching me through the back door! This is LouAnne. [​IMG]

    She is a Rhode Island Red. The difference between RIRs and Buckeyes is that RIRs have single combs (large, spiky), but Buckeyes have pea combs (smaller, made of ridges and bumps).

    She's a pretty hen. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. LouAnne is a beautiful RIR. You should get lots of nice, large, brown eggs from her. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with LouAnne.
