“Dottie” is six weeks old and I hatched her from an egg. I was told she was a RIR but she may be a mixed breed? She is the dominant hen but lately I’ve been wondering if she’s a “Dale.” See below for pictures. She has a puffy patch of feathers on her backside that none of my other chickens seem to have...any ideas? She is on the left in the second picture.

Those look like my old "Production Reds" which are a Rhode Island Red mixbreed, usualy
RIR x New Hampshire, although i had one that definitely looked part leghorn.

Mine were also sold as real Rhode Island Reds as chicks
