    Are these Rhode Islands? I had some last year and I think these ones look a little different.

    MooreAcresMama, that one looks like a RIR...... if it were a Production Red it would be lighter along the neck. A Heritage Rhode Island Red is a bit darker.

    Jetblack nice RIRs.....they look to be Heritage with the nice Mahoghany tone.

    These are two from last year. They are about 6ish weeks old here if I remember right. Are these production red?

    Sorry but I'm not good on different strains of RIR
