    Thanks for the input. I didn't think they were dark enough to be RIR. I was trying to get a good picture of the black feathers hidden in there. That's why I was thinking NH.

    They could be Production Reds. Where did you get them from?

    They were given to me last fall but I'm sure were purchased from a feed store.

    Hatchery RIR or production Reds.

    New Hampshires are more orange-y

    Sex links have white tips and tails as a rule.

    These girls aren't the really dark mahogany, true, but they're reasonably dark especially for hatchery birds.

    Thanks. I'm just starting to learn more about the differences between hatchery feed store birds and buying from a breeder and stuff.
