    My husband and I bought some hatching eggs at an auction and bout Rhode Island Red eggs.. (All brown eggs) well.... We got 29 that hatched out!!!! I've never seen black RIRs in my life!!! Lol we got the bad end of the stick but we love them!!!! I believe a few maybe RIR but I'm a bit confused on others. I believe we have some barred rocks, welsummers, and the rest I'm clueless!!! I have one gray one with feathers on his feet!!!! Lol here are pics help!! Thanks!

    Thanks ladies!!! The one thats #5 is lighter and no shades of red thats why I thought maybe it was different...on another note...I have alot of roosters!! haha!! No I just pulled one from each of the different breeds to take pics of and I guess I got lucky with roosters haha! How can you tell they are roosters at such a young age? Thanks for replying and I was really hoping Charlie was a hen!!!!!!!! Urgh..hes pretty big though so I guess I was expecting that haha! Thanks again for replying!!! [​IMG]

    well marans lay dark chocolate eggs and even though hes a little roo he could create darker egged offspring. also they tend to be quite sweet butr RIRS are the sweetest, jump right into your arms for s cuddle. BOs are great and barred rocks are good too. but wellsummers lay pretty eggs :) ALL OOF THEM lol
