    This RIR was the first one to start roosting - how cute!

    She must have used all her energy to get up there and fell asleep shortly thereafter!

    How adorable! She already has the roosting part down, wait until she learns about treats? [​IMG]

    Cute... but are you certain it's a RIR?

    Could be a BO or a Red sex link.

    Quote:The feathering coming in looks too light to be a RIR. I'm guessing it's something else.

    Quote:I got them this past Monday as (supposedly) day olds. Best guess - 1 week.

    Adorable!
    I just picked mine up yesterday at Agway. I was told 2 weeks old RIR's. They look just like yours! 3 of mine are roosting... I hope they're RIR's because we wanted them for the eggs!

    Quote:They don't look like RIR to me; too light. Possibly BO. No expert here. You might want to get a few more pics and start your own thread in "what breed is this."
