Hi everyone, these are my RIR's and I was wondering if they look like they should. And should the hens have black on the main tail feathers? Be honest. I need the help.



Two pics of the same roo.



This is my RIW. I want to bread with the RIR, and what will I get? Comet Sex Links? I think.

If I remember right, I think it's the roo who needs to be the RIW.

As for the RIR's. The black in the tails is normal. But looks like you have happy helathy feed store/ hatchery RIR's.

They look like the new hampshire reds on the Mcmurray hatchery site to me ~ but they are beautiful birds ~

They look like production bred RI Reds & yes, the female should have black main tail feathers. Your RI White isn't- RI Whites are rose combed not single combed. I'd say that's a White Rock.

Quote:I paid over $40.00 to get them off of eBay, the RIW's. Out of 12 eggs I only got 4, 2 hens and 2 roos that I gave away. I can't believe that. That makes me mad. Thanks for letting me know.

And what kind of RIR's are there. I got him off ebay as an egg. Hatched them my self, I did. LOL What is a hatchery RIR?
