    With the green legs on the second hen, I think she is an EE.

    First onr looks like a Production Red or RIR and the second one judging from her colored legs, probably an EE.

    Production Red cockerel, and, umm. . . I'd guess EE but she doesn't have any other characteristic of one. No pea comb, no muffs/beard, rather round looking body. . .

    Well you never know what to expect from hatcheries, I have a barred rock who looks just like a cuccko Maran, white legs and her barring is irregular, but she lays light colored brown eggs, it could be an EE or it could also be a Production red with a defect in htis case green legs.

    Quote:I am confused too. My RIRs had those wierd little white feather tips until they got older. Then they were just RED. Perhaps she's a mix?

    Production red roo.

    The pullet I just don't know. Pretty sure she's a girl, but those legs are a stumper! I'd love to see pics of her in a few weeks, just to see how her color looks.

    Thank everyone!!! We were pretty sure Seamus was a production red or RIR...but like yall, Gangstallene has us totally confused...she is the biggest chicken we have-even bigger than Seamus. I will give her a couple more weeks and post of new picture of her. Hope everyone has a great week.

    I agree on the 1st one but I think the 2nd one looks like an EE roo who got a straight comb.
