    SQ RIRs should be very dark, almost black in the shade. It's the production birds that are lighter and most commonly seen.

    I think their color looks quite good. However, I'm not an expert.

    RIR's should be some what dark... Around the color of a Bing cherry or blood red...
    chicken master:
    I would like to see a picture of them in the day that would give a better example of the true color..
    There not that bad... If you want a good true answer ask NYREDS on here or you can post a pic over at http://mattlh.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=redforum there are some good RIR breeders over there..
