    We have a total of 6 RIR. 2 have much bigger wattles. I think they are roos, however my DH thinks they may be Hens about to lay.

    How old are they? They look like my Production Red pullet. She lays me a nice brown egg nearly every day.

    Agreed. RIR hens would be darker, and no white whatsoever.​
