    I posted about these chicks last week, but I finally have better pics. They were "supposed" to be RIRs, but when I got them I knew they weren't. Maybe red sex links? I have no idea.

    This girl is Scarlett, she is about 2 weeks (all 3 have similar coloring):

    They don't look like RSL to me.

    No way are those RSL, there's just no way. O.O

    Well, they're most probably Welsummers as Paco said.

    Good luck with your girls!

    Possibly Brown Leghorn? Other "chipmunks" I've seen are OEG and EE....

    Ugh. Not EEs, as they have yellow legs. I saw one pic of RSL chicks on feathersite that had the chipmunk stripes, which is why I thought maybe RSL. I wouldn't mind Welsummers, definitely don't want Leghorns. Any other thoughts?

    Quote:Just so you know EE's can have,
    Any color leg,
    Any type of comb,
    Any color plumage,
    and lay any color egg.

    Most if not all EE's are cross breeds...

    I would have to say you have Production Reds. (RIR and NHR) I bought 3 'PR' pullets in April and that is what mine looked like. Let me see if I have a pic.
