ok RIRs? 4 weeks
They look like red sex links to me(girls).
My RIR is only 3 weeks and is the only one I have ever had. However she looks nothing like that! So I can't help you much. Sorry I purchased mine at the feed store so it could have been labled wrong. I bet that someone will be able to tell you more soon! Oh and I want to add that you have great taste in beer!!
RIR chicks don't have that much white in their feathers. I would guess they are red sex-links also and if that's the case they should all be girls.
Yep, they are not Rhode Island Reds, but most likely red sexlinks.
doesn't really matter I just want eggs. I guess when you get "RIR" at TSC and they can sex them for you they are sex linked but o well
I have a production red, which I thought was also called a red sex link, and she looks nothing like yours. Mine has no white?
They sure are cute though
Taken from Ideal's site:
Production Reds are a brown egg layer that was developed for efficient production of large brown eggs. Crosses utilizing Rhode Island Reds and New Hampshire Reds were used in the development of this breed.
Red Sex Links are a breed cross using Rhode Island Red males and Delaware females. The females are primarily red while the males are primarily white; therefore, the sexes can be separated immediately following hatching.
Those chicks look just like my Golden Comet sex-link chicks. If so, you have all girls!
Those look exactly like my red sex-links.
