    I know it's not a great pic, but anyone have any idea as to what these are? I'm told they are RIR x white leghorn. Doesn't seem right cause i thought that would produce more of a white bird.

    They are red sex links. They will lay lots of large brown eggs.

    Yes, those are red sex links - white leghorn are not generally used for RSL due to being dominant white, but it is a common misunderstanding/assumption by those unfamiliar with that, it is more likely they are the result of a RIR x white rock (or other silver based breed)
