    My neighbor bought these but now we are unsure exactly what they might be. What does the experts say?

    The hen on the fence is a RIR. Not sure on the others.

    Some one told me that RIR has yellow feets, I think the hen at the fence is RIR, I have 6 RIR hens and one rooster.

    production reds, comets, production new hampshires. True RIR's are almost plum color. I raise RIR bantams for show.

    They don't seem purebred. But not Red sex-links either. They look like RIR mixed with New Hampshires, but seem slimer like they have some brown Leghorn in them maybe.. [​IMG]
