Rhode Island Red - Standard Bred

Post by la-chicken » Sat Nov 26, 2016 8:17 am

Nice back! Good colour in those legs. And all the beautiful tail feathers!

Here is my best Pullet Buckeye from my own breeding of 2016.

She is not standing proper...Silly girl.

I am looking for RIR Rose Combs........Do you know anyone? Willing to ship via West Jet......Looking for a trio or a pair. Yes, thinking about getting into the "other" Red Breed!

Breeder of the Buckeye has been a long hard road. But, I am starting to see my work pay off with a win ofBest American with a pullet. Very excited to see 2018 hatchings! Things have been improving BIG time!
Very excited to work with SC RIR this year and continue with the Bantam White and Black Wyandotte.

Impossible in Canada @ the moment . You could try Dick Horstman in the states , I have heard he will do export papers on chicks

Here' Duffess He's a big old clown hense the name, I think about 9 months old. What do you think of him? Myself I think he's looking pretty nice but I am not familiar with this breed so I thought I'd ask you . I won't be keeping him as the hen I bought him for up and died, just wondering if it's worth keeping him till the spring for someone s breeding

Oh Kenya, RIR aren't my breed, but that guy makes me seriously consider them again...I think he's gorgeous, and SO young, a stunner already, I bet he'll be a force to be reckoned with in a few months time. Maybe keep him and get him some nice hens lol

hmm how did I miss this? Reds are the best!!! Im by no means an expert or authority on reds but they are my breed and I still have lots to learn. so heres what I think... his body shape looks good, his colour looks pretty good too. his comb looks perfect. you see the horn colour on his beak, also perfect. I think his legs could be a bit brighter and with some streaks of horn on them as well.

I didnt even know you had a red there Kenya! your guna need some more! ;-)

As a breeder of the ' Other' Red bird. This is what I see.

I see a narrow frame. and the breast is cut to a V. This is also telling me his frame is very narrow and maybe under weight from the guide lines of the Standard. Another sign of a narrow frame is how he is standing. The space of his Stance. Feet very close together. Angle of tail don't look right, looks like it drops bit.
Colour is good...but keep an eye out for the lighter areas. I would not breed to lighter hens.
Like thegawd stated: beak,comb and leg colour are good.

This is just my opinion.

Still to young o evaluate properly, la is correct in the width of this bird . His tail may rise as he ages . I do not like the fact he has no horn colour in his legs . I find my reds still grow until about 14 months of age
