    I posted this in another thread and have not gotten a reply perhaps someone can help me if I repost-

    I thought this chick was a Buff Orpington- but as it has grown I am thinking it may indeed be RIR-what do you think? They had the RIR and the BO in the same bin at the feed store-

    Yes, I think so. I had 2 and they looked just like that at that age, here is a pick of mine when they were a week or so older than your is now.

    She looks like a pretty little Production Red to me. [​IMG]

    With what I've seen, I say no on the RIR due to color (too light)...looking for Chris to jump in lol...The white tips and light color and pale legs throw me off, maybe red star, need to see chickie pics, I might post again on this one...let me do some research, let me think. Great Pics!

    Thank you all for your help! Yes Colebart they do look so simular! Katy, I haven't considered her to be a Production Red, that could very well be the case!

    Quote:I know, she does seem rather light, her yellow is the same yellow as the (supposed) Buff Orpington is- I am hoping she is not a hybrid- she is not suppose to be. But doesn't quite look like either breed the feed store says she was.

    here is a pic of her with the other chicks.

    She's awful light even for a hatchery quality RIR. Possibly a New Hampshire????
