    I got three chicks from the local feed store yesterday - they are supposed to be RIR but are yellowish with chipmunk stripes. I have a feeling they are actually EEs. They were "extras" with an order of 15, the guy that bought them only wanted 12. I told the owner I would take them because I wanted RIRs, but when I got there and saw they were (maybe) EEs, I took them anyway because I felt sorry for them [​IMG]

    Anyway, is it possible I could actually have RIRs??

    Thanks

    I am fairly sure that they are EEs, but on the bright side at least you will get some colorful eggs![​IMG]

    Not EEs. No beard, and yellow legs. I think they might be somthing BB-red??

    Quote:You're right - the legs are not olive. Didn't even think of that. I have an EE and she has the green legs. Guess I have some mystery chicks on my hands. Anyone else have any guesses?

    I asked when I picked them up and she told me a name I have never heard of. Thought she said it was in PA. I found a pic of red sex link chicks on feathersite with the chipmunk stripes, wonder if that is what they are?

    No clue if it's Hoffman. And it looks like a single comb, but I'm no expert. Especially with little chickies.

    They resemble BB-red Cubalaya chicks, but they have pea combs, not single [​IMG] Bah! i'll keep looking...
