    I think this is a RIR about 3 weeks of age.

    The first is possible that it is RIR, but I don't really think so, with that brownish ticking in the feathers. (tho I haven't had RIRs in years)

    Second looks scarily like a red sex-link male.

    Not sure on the first, and not really sure on the second either, but the reddish color in the feathers kind of makes me think that it is not a BO, and the white tips. [​IMG] What type of comb does it have and color of the legs?

    The first looks just like my RIR's at that age, ticking and all. Dunno on the second.
