  2. My Rhode Island chicks were much darker then that. I would say no but don't take my word for it. [​IMG]

    I belive that it is a Rhode Island Red, a Production Red, or a Buff Orpington (least likely). Hope that helps you.

    Give it more time, it may darken as new feathers come in

    I would guess Red Sex-link, but we'll have a better idea when it is more feathered in.
