    I bought 16 BO chicks a couple weeks ago, but have noticed that 4 have this wing pattern. The seller was also raising Production Reds. Do you suppose these chicks are PR's instead of BO?

    It sure looks that way, it may be a PR but it looks a little lite colored. But it looks as though those 4 may be a cross.

    Ideal sent us 9 production red "packing peanuts" with our pullet order.

    Yours looks just like ours. Some of ours are much more red than yours but some are lighter like yours.

    Here's a photo of one of my BO. They are growing so fast! As you'll notice, her wings her dark, but they don't have the black and white markings as the chick pictured above.

    The legs look like a BO, but the wings don't. I'm guessing it's a cross.

    Here's a picture of my production red a few days older than yours.
