A friend told me she had a RIR she needed to find a home for. I took it, but I'm not so sure it's a RIR. Doesn't look like any I've seen. Can anyone help me out? I'm mainly just curious. We have a Buff Orpington, and though she looks similar to the buff, it is definitely darker and different. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! :)

You can tell I don't know much about chickens. Haha! Now that you said that, I can easily tell that's what it is! Thanks for solving the (simple) mystery! :)

Lots of folks call any reddish bird a Rhode Island Red, just like lots of folks call any medium-large black dog a lab
She's a pretty red sex link, should give you tons of brown eggs.
