    Hey everyone,

    I have uploaded a few pictures of my production reds. I've been looking for a rooster to add to my free ranging flock.
    seem my luck is for all pullets,ive hatched 20 production reds and these are the only 2 that had shortest tails and more red in the comb and wattles growing. with my experience in productions and Rhode islands . seem that even my 4 month old Rhode islands have No coloring or development in the wattles. but I don't have much experience so help me out please.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] the photos above are of the first chick. photos below are the second. and they are about 5 weeks old.[​IMG]

    both?? they have been hard to tell. the combs and wattles will be really red but by 5 weeks the combs are very short still.

    Sorry, I didn't see that there are 2. The first one certainly is based on the tail, thick legs, and comb and wattles. I suspect the 2nd is as well, but I don't see a body shot of the 2nd. (side profile showing legs is best)
