    Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone could post a picture of a Rhode Island Red and a separate picture of a Golden Comet. I have 3 Golden Comets and I was wondering if the Rhode Island Reds look similar.

    Thanks for reading this,

    Above are 2 of my Golden Comets. (I saved them from becoming battery hens, but not before their beaks were trimmed. So, they would normally have bigger beaks.)

    This one is my RIR cockerel.
