    Hi, I have 5 what I thought were Rhode Island Reds. I thought that the darker 2 were just older, (they were given to me as RIRs), the other 3 I bought at feed store as RIRs. But the 3 I bought are bigger and lighter color. They don't have the same markings around the neck either. I looked on net, but just got more confused. So I thought I would let you all decide for me !!!! Thanks !!!!!

    The first looks like a Black Sex Link, the second looks like a Production Red (Rhode Island Red x New Hampshire).

    None of your birds are RIR's. Two are BSL and three are Production Reds

    This is what a Rhode Island Red (RIR) should look like
