    I bought two 'RIR' from Ideal and now that there about 21 weeks old they look like to different birds. Im thinking one might be a New Hampshire? Im not sure though. Im not sure how well you can see the two in this picture, but its the best I could get with my camera phone. One I call a UT color and the other I call a Tx A&M color. Can anyone help?

    They are RIR. I have some NHR and they are a much lighter brown.

    What's the best way to tell the difference between a NH and RIR?

    I have a chicken (see my avatar, then age 4 wks) who was supposed to be a RIR. However, the color is not as dark as I had thought RIRs were supposed to be. Now, I am thinking maybe NH.

    And I am confused about what a "Production Red" is. Is that the same as a Red Sex Link or something else?

    Quick question -

    What breed is the chicken behind the two RIR hens in the top pic? I have three just like it, was told they're Brown Leghorns, but I seriously doubt it.

    Thanks,

    Kathy
