    I have juvenile RI Reds and Buckeye's with one rooster in the bunch but I don't know which breed he is yet. What do you think?

    The photo is not all that clear, but buckeyes are meant to be pea combed and this chick appears to be single combed.

    So if it's single combed then would it be RI Red? Here are more pics. They still aren't all too clear but a moving chicken isn't always easy to get a clear pic. [​IMG][​IMG]
