    I was told by the guy I bought them from that they were Rhode Island Reds but he didn't know for sure and they originally didn't look like Rhode Island Reds...they looked just like Golden Comets until recently and now they are looking like Rhode Island Reds looking more red...HELP!!!

    My vote is for RIR..."Red" Golden comets are more splashy-looking with a bit of white thru them.

    To me they look a little lighter than my RIRs.

    But they are pretty.

    They are probably production reds so they won't be as dark as an RIR.
