    The he's somewhat in shadow but if his legs are yellow and his feathers are chestnut, he's a New Hampshire. If his feathers are mahogany, he's a Rhode Island Red. I agree that he's a gorgeous bird. :eek:)

    He's probably a Production Red. He isn't dark enough to be a Rhode Island Red, and doesn't look quite like a New Hampshire either.

    He's either a Production Red or a New Hampshire.
