    I'm guessin' he's a Barred Rock, or a NJ Giant...he's growin' pretty fast!

    & I am guessin' that my Red hen is a RIR or a Red Sex Link...

    Awesome! Another Layer...! My Australorp is a dual purpose from what the teacher told us...[​IMG] I kinda figured she's a RIR, she's not too people personal like my Australorp...[​IMG]

    My Barred Rock though is VERY friendly...[​IMG] (Looked up on Wikipedia & it's not a Jersey Giant, so I am thinkin' a Barred Rock Roo)

    None of my RIR hens are friendly but my little RIR roo chick LOVES to be scratched and rubbed under the wings. He must think he is a parrot seeing as I let him perch on my hand still.

    Yes, the boy is a dominique or dom mix. The red hen, however is not RIR--see the white on the wing feathers? Red sex-link.
