What are we?!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone! We got five new hens this past weekend and we're not sure what three of them are. The black one maybe a black sex link? The white one I have absolutely no clue. The orange one maybe a Buff Orpington? I appreciate everyone's input. Thank you!

 

 

She has a green sheen to her feathers when the sun hits her

 

 

She has very pale blue patches behind/under her eyes and that big floppy comb

 

I haven't been able to get a good picture of her, but she's quite different than my Red Stars. It's the chicken very front, facing the camera.

Black Sex-link, White Leghorn, Red Sex-link, maybe a New Hampshire mix, and a Red Sex-link rooster.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Black Sex-link, white leghorn and a production bird.

Black Sex Link pullet, White Leghorn pullet, and some type of mixed breed pullets (possible Red Sex Links although unusual ones if they are).

I guess I'm curious why people are thinking the red hen is another red sex-link? She looks so different from my two RSL hens. Her feet and legs are far lighter, almost white. She also is quite a bit lighter and lacks the frequent white feathers. I don't know what the hallmarks of each are, so I'm asking for education's sake, not argument's. :)

She has the white underfluff and white tail feathers that are typical of Red Sex Link hens, but I agree with your about the legs and feet and the lighter color which is why I stated in my post that if she is a Red Sex Link, she's an unusual one. If she's a RSL, some type of rooster other than the standard RIR or NH was crossed with a silver gene hen to produce her (it's certainly a possibilty). On the other hand, she may just be a mixed breed.
