    I'm not sure if this is a Rhode Island Red, but what do you think? And any guesses how old she is? I hope she's fairly young, does an old hen have a pink comb? [​IMG][​IMG]

    The Brown Leghorn in the back is SO scared, the flock excepted them very nicely though.

    Could be New Hampshire or a RIR! Looks in pretty good health! Glad they merged so nicely! Thats always a bonus

    The photos are very, very small. Sorry, it would be sheer guessing to offer much.

    Pull back her feathers, if the down under is white she's a production red. Hatchery stock RIR, New Hampshire.

    She looks of laying age.

    Thanks for the help, I'm sorry the pics are so small, I will try to take some pics with the camera later when I have time.
