    I like RIR. I have 12 of them. They seem pretty mild breed, unlike my dominiques which are real shy and skittish.

    I have more RIR than anything else... I'm a BIG fan! I guess I don't talk about them much because they are pretty average (compared to my freakish polish crested monster-roo or my sweet little sultan girl) but there are sure a lot of us on this board that have plenty of info on them. If you need info, just ask - I bet there are many who'd love to share.

    Edited to add: Oh, and WELCOME to BYC!

    I have mostly RIR's too and I love them. They're very calm, good girls.
