    I don't know about the other breeds - but the second one over doesn't look like an RIR to me. It has the chipmunk stripes down the back and I don't believe RIR have that (mine didn't).

    Quote:Yes most don't, but some do. Just depends what is actually in the blood line. Going from the list of possibles it was the only one that made since.

    Oh and I forgot that New Hampshires also hatch out Buff colored, so the buff could be a NH instead.
