    We bought 2 week old chicks from a guy who told us they were redstars. He said they were a cross between a leghorn and a Rhode island red. But I've noticed that they don't look like red stars. They're 3 months old now and one is a light brown color, while the others are more of a brown mahogany color, without any white patches like redstars have. Even as chicks they looked different. I was just curious as to what kind of chicken they are so I can know when they'll start laying. I'm pretty sure they're all hens tooThank you in advance to anyone who answers my question :) [​IMG] oh and here are some pictures of them:

    It looks like you have some New Hampshire Reds (the lighter ones with black neck striping) and a hatchery Rhode Island Red.
