    Yes, they are hatchery RIR. Yours are nice and on the dark side, with nice yellow legs. Of course, none of our TSC type RIR are show quality, nor up to the Standard of Perfection for the breed, but still. Healthy, friendly and lay great eggs. That is what hatchery stock is all about. Enjoy them.

    I'm not all that versed in the Polish sop, but that looks like a nice buff laced roo! His lacing is well defined, his wings carried well, and his tail isn't pinched at all. The only thing I'm not sure of is whether his back posture should be more vertical. Hopefully someone more in the know will come along and set me straight if I'm way off.
