    Does anyone know what breed this hen is? I am attaching one pic of her at 3 days old and one at 2 months old. The feed store said she was a buff orpington but she's looking more like a road island red or some kind of cross (but not quite as dark as my RIR).

    Not sure of breed but looks like a hatchery quality RIR.
