    We were sold this roo chick yesterday and told it was a brown leghorn, but it seems more like a RI Red..? As I am new I am not being allowed to post a photo.. which makes this difficult, but he is all rust colored, with a little black on the top of his head and a faint black stripe down the back. He is about 3 -4 days old. His chest is a bit white/lighter as are the tips of his wings. Thanks

    Thanks, that site does have some great photos. We are now thinking maybe he is a red leghorn..
    We also have an araucana pullet, and two black sex link 3 month old chickens. Our "brood" lives in our living room at the moment, and are good about staying on top of their coop while it's left open. We live in a town for a few more months that doesn't allow chickens so we only let them outside for short periods of time. They come and stare in the window when they're ready to come in.
    Nice to have a site like this!
