Not a RIR. They dont have that widow's peak on the head like that. Could be a Welsummer or several other things. RIRs are a solid color. These chicks are RIRs.

It doesn't look like my RIR's. Here is a pic from about the same age.


Sorry about the quality. It was from our brooder (cat crate) and the babies are playing chase the chicken with the mealworm!

I don't think I've ever seen stripes on a RIR. Here are the ones that I hatched this season from my partner.

I don't have any guesses, but i did notice that your baby has yellow legs and the babies in that pic have pinkish leggies...

looks like that to me too! I only thought rir cause I got some from farm and fleet that I thought looked like that, they had the stripes and were suppose to be rir too!! I think I was confused and maybe they were ee chicks??? It was a while ago.
Maybe I have been looking at chicks too much lately!! I wanted to hatch more but DH said NO!!!!!!
