Curse these New England breeds!
How do you tell the difference?
Here's a good link to check put. Hope it helps.
Ok, I read through it and there appears to be no obvious differences, although the RIR can have a rose comb and the NH cannot. Thanks, but I need more help!
Do you happen to have pics? My NRW looks very different from my RIR. They are a brassy orange. My RIR are a deep chestnut red with black on the tips of the tail feathers.
edited to add: I got these pics from feather site http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/BRKPoultryPage.html#Chickens
I have hatchery NHs and RIRs, as well as three lovely dark breeder RIRs. The NHs are a more bright orangey red than the RIRs. Even my hatchery RIR is much more red than orange. It's very easy to tell my own NHs from any of the RIRs.
Thanks all - I believe these are RIR's then! Graphics always help
