    we went to the feed store and bought two chicks. The first one they said was a RIR and she looks like a lot of the pics on here, and the breed pics. But they said our other one is a mix, of leghorn, and something else. We are thinking silky!? She was just very cute, and came to us when we put our hand down so she was picked. We're actually not concerned with looks as long as they lay when grown.
    SSooooo any help would be appreciated!

    Quote:well so far they are total buddies! Our little RIR is WAY taller than her though, and they are supposed to be the same age, few weeks old.[​IMG]

    Thank you so much everyone! I will put up pics later on as she matures. Hopefully she will get rid of the raggedy look [​IMG]
