    Here's some pictures of my RIRs from Julie (Bamachicken). The rooster is still pretty gawky looking. I love how deep red they are.

    Great looking Reds. I no longer have any of my reds. Hard decision but need the room for Orps. I did acidentally hatch another RIR chick. Of course I have some of my flock close by at two different peoples houses so I could get some and start over. Ha Ha

    I'm so hoping the roo stays nice. This is the first time in 30 years I've kept a RIR roo. The other couple I had were mean and nasty!! I'm enjoying these and will be happy when they start laying.

    3 roos and 2 pullets.
    When I get home this evening, two of the roos are going in isolation.
    They wont quit fighting!!!!

    I'm hoping he inherited his father's disposition. Julie said he's even tempered so I hope mine is too.

    Such gorgeous birds. I have production RIR, eventually I want to hatch out some of these beauties. They are so dark and handsome.
