    I bought 8 hens and a rooster from an old man who said he purchased them as day old chicks from a hatchery in Missouri last Spring. He had bought these and some Orpingtons. He said he thought they were Rhode Island Reds, but he couldn't remember, but they don't look like Rhode Island Red hens based on the reds and photos I've seen. They are good brown egg layers. Any help or opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I had read that was a cross breed and wondered if that's what I had, but couldn't find a good pic to go by. I just found one, and there's no doubt. Much thanks to you for your help.

    The hens are red sex-links and the rooster looks like a New Hampshire, very handsome [​IMG]
