Rhode Island Reds? Almost look like Leghorns. Combs are pretty big. Any ideas?

    Hello, I brought 2 lovely girls home yesterday, Ethel and Lucy. They look like RIR's, but not completely. The combs are very large, and they have white earlobes. Well, Ethel does. They are a good deal smaller then my RIR too. I am just curious as to what they might be. Thanks!

    They're probably RIR leghorn crosses.

    they are red sex links or hatchery rhode island reds and the ears are just pale not white.

    leghorn was most likely crossed into the hatchery reds or red sex links. Maybe my comp screen is broken but they look like pale ears not white on my screen.
