    Ok...I post a couple pics of what I thought might be my roos yesterday,and got a couple replies that my Rhode Island Reds might not be RIRs at all.[​IMG] So I thought I would post a few pics and see what some people think?? I was told they were RIRs,but I am new to all this,so I can't tell the difference between RIR or NHR...or whatever. They were bought at TSC,if that helps. Ok also just found out...they came from Privett Hatchery. What do ya'll think??
    If not RIRs....then what are they??? Sweet as can be anyway.[​IMG]

    I'm not an expert but those don't look anything like RIR to me. Sorry. They are pretty though.

    Mine are a darker red. Maybe the guy was just confused and thought RIR or NHR all red!

    The ones your children are holding are some sort of red, but much too light a shade to be RIR. The others aren't red at all: buff, buff columbian and a couple who may be poorly marked mille fleur.

    I wonder if they are a cross between a RIR and a BO?

    Here is what my RIRs look like.

    Quote:Really?! You're the only other I have heard of so far....everyone else says theirs are much darker.I don't know,but I'm beginning to think I might not have gotten RIRs.[​IMG]
