    Okay I order from Ideal two RIR's and two BO's. So I know which two are the BO, but Im starting to think one of my so called RIR's, may not be a RIR. She doesnt look anything like my other RIR or the pictures I see people posting of their RIR's. Im not sure if you can tell in the pictures, but her main color is a very soft tan color. When I look at the grown in feathers of hers, its more of a tawny. With my other RIR hers is more of a deep brownish red.

    What are your thoughts?

    She is the one in the middle..

    Looks like a rir chick to me. Their first set of teen feathers usually has some barring, black, and white stripes on them, and then when they grow up, turn the adult red. Don't quite see as much white dots in the feathers, but they can be a bit different.
