    Looks like a red sexlink hen, a hybrid layer.

    Nothing wrong with Stars! Our Rita is our smallest, spunkiest, and best layer!

    Looks like a RSL to me too. Ours was the sweetest bird we had, but she became an internal layer and died. Sorry you didn't get the RIRs you were supposed to.

    Not sure about the sex linked, looks that way to me. But...... I had a BO/RIR mix, that looked just like that. Would that be a possibility? Either way, you didn't get what you paid for. But I would rather have her than some of my RIR hens:lau they can be overly moody:cd
