I have just recently gotten into the chicken business, and I got my chicks from tractor supply. They are growing fast and are now about 10 days old. The girl at the store said they were all RIR but now that they have gotten bigger they have started to look different! Can anyone tell what breed?

Chickens dont have their true colors until almost a year old. I had some production red ( which is basically what TSC sells since they dont sell heritage or older birds bred to SOP) anyway, they started out light and got darker as the feathers grew. Your does look more like a red sex link than a "RIR".

Thank you both! I didn't know if they were the same breed because they look so different! But I guess time will tell all! :)
