    I recently received 5 new chickens and 3 are rhode island reds I believe or a mix of others also, one isn't exactly red and more yellowish red with a red neck the other to are young. The first young is a rooster his name is King and the other one is Chikky i reckon they are about 1-3 months. The other big hen is 3 years old.i have taken a few photos which you can look at and tell me what you think[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC.

    The birds you showed in the photos look to be very healthy and doing well for you. As for their breed? I'd have no idea, but certainly look to be mixes of some kind.

    For certain, they aren't Rhode Island Reds, not even a little bit, to be honest.
