    I was told these were RIR when I get them as hatching eggs at an auction. I can not remember what colors they were at hatch. I can not for the life of me remember when they hatched. Maybe 6-9 weeks old.

    I'm not sure what they are, but they aren't RIR.

    Well those aren't RIR, but maybe a delaware cross of some kind? [​IMG]

    I would bet they are EE's, judging by the leg colors, one seems to be lighter pink, the other two kind of a grey...

    very well could be, I guess they dont have to have the muff's or beards to be EE's? They have the "right" leg color for EE's.

    Lots of chickens have the same leg colour as EE--since EEs can have just about any leg colour there is as EEs have no standard.

    They hatched from supposedly RIR eggs; well, they are obviously not RIRs, but I sincerely doubt EE as the eggs were obviously brown.

    Delawares or an RIR X Delaware is a good guess.

    EE's can lay a brown egg as well as pink, blue, green...As none of the leg colors are uniform, I would say they look like EE'rs as well. I have one that looks like them and I love her.
