    How do I tell the difference between them?

    I have some white birds with no red on them. I have some very white birds that in the right light appear to have an extremely light orange tint from the shoulders up....

    I am having so much trouble trying to determine my breeds, I can only hope I keep hens and not roosters.

    I would say the ones with the tint are the RSLs (if they are roos). I only had one RSL roo that actually had the pretty dark brown on his wings and such, but he fell prey to a fox. The two I have left are almost completely white, but do have the cream/orange-ish color on their hackles and little down their backs.
