    I ordered RIR pullets in February but when I picked them up at the hatchery they read my order as RIR or RSL. I just assumed with the commonality of the RSLs that that was what they were, but someone recently suggested they may actually be RIRs. My babies are 8 & 1/2 weeks old. Can anyone shed some light on this? Maybe they're mixed?

    If they are RIRs, are they pullets?

    They are pullets. Either RIR, production reds or even NH. They all look similar.
