    We purchased a straight run of 6 Rhode Island Reds and 6 Easter Eggers this spring. A friend of mine also purchased some RR's this spring (in a different state). Her hens look nothing like my hens.....
    Also we added to the mix by purchasing some laying pullets 2 RR's and 4 EE's. The mature RR's look just like my friends RR's... which leaves me wondering what kind of chicks did I end up with origainally.

    All this time I thought they were RR's.

    Anyone know?

    The pullets are not RIR (don't know about the Roo - never had a RIR roo).

    They don't look like my Red Sex-link either but ... I'm not an expert so ...

    I agree with Ruby, she does look like a NH.
