    I was told this was a RIR, but could she be an NHR??

    Thanks

    Should've mentioned to notice the RIR standing next to Violet as she dustbathes. Just a bit of difference in color eh??!!![​IMG]

    She looks like a pretty NHR pullet to me. I have two of them.

    Thank you, Cyn & Silkieluvr!

    Please check back with this thread. I have another BLOND (so-called) "RIR" that I want to post. But our nasty weather prevents me from getting a good picture.

    Hope you can check back in.

    The other blond who I want to show you all, is a bit less blond, and I hope to get the thoughts of any who....This other bird's name is Beautiful. As chicks, they looked so much like the RIR chicks but were definitely well.....BLONDER.

    Here are my two blonds at 33 days of age in their brooder. They are together on the left. Violet, whom most of you know already, is in front, Beautiful, the lesser blond is behind her.

    Notice how their color differs from the others at right.

    Any thoughts welcome
