    PDSAVAGE,did you get these from Sandhill or from Ebay?
    I bought some from Ebay and he's right They do look like Hampshire reds.I also bought a pair from a swap that came from Sand hill.
    I had a Hampshire red hen that did look like a Red Sussex White legs and all.
    I can see why the guy thought he had Red Sussex.The chicks legs were yellow.
