    Ok.. After thinking about it time and time again I just have to know... We picked out a few RIR's from a local breeder but one of them just stands out like a sore thumb... I know the guy has a mix of breeds but he assured us that they were all the same breed that we picked out... Maybe someone on here can give me some insight...

    Definately a RIR! Almost 3 months old.

    And here's all 3 small ones that I don't have a question about

    NOW... The questionsable oddball!

    As you can see from the pics, the oddball chick is feathering out MUCH more slowly, does not have a tail yet and looks "different" than the others... Maybe it's just a different sex than the others since I've read on several sites that RIR's roos get tail feathers slower?? (I think I remembered that correctly).. They are 3 weeks old.

    Actually, the first one does not look like a RIR. Legs are the wrong color. Looks like a mixed breed. No idea in the last ones-can't tell from the pic.
  3. Actually none of them look like my RIR. But maybe it's just the pics, alittle hard to see.
