    Is this a Rhode Island Red? How old do you think he is? He doesn't really have any spurs yet.

    Looks a little light for a "true" RIR, usually they tend to be a dark brick red color. Maybe he's a New Hampshire?

    Could be a hatchery quality RIR, possibly a new hamp or general production red. Can't tell age, old enough to crow but could be a couple years. Some roos don't get much spurs.

    Aloha,

    He does look like a New Hampshire, not a RIR. The RIR are much darker mahogany color. He looks about a year or under that. He doesn't look like he has any black in his neck hackles. So I am leaning toward NH. He is beautiful roo....
