    I will be picking up my chicks soon. My friend ordered some of the Production Reds and I ordered some of the Rhode Island Reds. How can I tell them apart BEFORE they are full grown?

    I have some of both and love them all.Both are great layers and I if I remember right the PR chicks have a faint strip down their back where the RIR's do not.
