    This one chases everyone around and stands tall to everyone else. The legs are thicker than all the others.

    How old is it? and I would say it is a perduction red not a RIR...

    Can't tell from that picture. How old is it? That makes a huge difference.

    They are 10 weeks today I believe. They are suppose to be Rhode Island Reds. At least that's what I ordered & paid for.

    I believe it's a production red, (Hatchery Rhode island red basically).. From the pictures it's a bit too small. but im thinking pullet.

    Hello new to the forums so I hope someone replies. I have a RIR that I bought from Family Farm and Home (along w/a Buff Orpington, Ameracauna, Cali Grey Leghorn, Silv Laced Wynadotte, and a ISA Brown). Supposed to be a pullet but now they are 8 weeks and its acting pretty aggy and has quite the comb and wattles on her/him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
