    I was told they were RIR. They now look like this (in background):

    Newest baby came in, is either my "meal maker" chick or my rare breed assorted chick. Was told also RIR, but she is much darker with a darker stripe down the back:

    Are they all RIR? Do I have something else?

    Black ones are barred rocks...white ones I wasn't sure on either. So the top photos are indeed RIR?
