    I am still trying to figure out if my 3 red heads are RIR or Red Stars. Looking under the feathers shows no white feathering at all. I am now leaning towards RIR.
    Thanks in advance!

    This is one of the lighter ones. Some don't have as much white, but all have some white.

    Thanks, that helps. My 3 girls are deep red, no white or light feathers at all, I think they just might be RIR instead.

    Anyone else have pictures they can share? I will post pictures of my girls in a bit. They just move so much I got frustrated last time I tried to do pictures!

    Then they don't come in a darker color? My three are a deep mahogany. Thanks for the info too.
