    Opinions please, I'm beginning to wonder if I received the breeds that I ordered. I'm particually questioning the RIRs. I've been looking every where for pics of chicks but can't find any that satisfy my curiosity. It also may be too early to tell right? [​IMG]

    If they aren't RIRs or sex link I would really just want to know what indeed they are [​IMG] Thx for looking! [​IMG]

    Red sex link looks like a Cinnamon Queen... egg laying machines.

    The reds might actually be production reds.

    Your RIR's ain't RIR's not even bad ..
    The checks in the wings tell me that..
    They could be production reds or a hatchery New Hampshire..
    some hatcheries will send New Hamps as RIR's when they run out of RIR's just like they send out buff rocks when there out of buff orpington chicks...
