    I got 6 of these free with my Ideal order (males for warmth). I have no clue what they are. Any ideas? I want to get rid of them, but need to be able to tell people what they are.

    I don't think they are supposed to be unusual, they could be RIRs. They just stick them in to keep the ones I bought warm, so I'm guessing they'd be pretty generic chickens.

    Looks like Rhode Island to me too. That's also a breed they would have alot of so it would be a likely choice to send out to be used as a heater.

    Well, where are you? Your location isn't in your profile and you didn't say where you were. If we knew, maybe someone would know someone who wanted them.

    Maybe they're Production Reds? Have you checked with the hatchery to see what they have? That may be a way, thru elimination, to figure out what you have. Sure is a cutie!! [​IMG]
