Not sure what 3 of my hens are...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I bought six chickens to start my flock, and I'm sure that 3 are production RIR, 2 are possibly Red Sex-links, and the last was described as a RIR and Brown Leghorn mix. I got them on 10/20, and moved them in that evening. They seem to have taken to their new environment rather quickly. If anyone can confirm or deny the identity of these birds, I would very much appreciate it. Here's a picture of their new home (5'x8' coop, 8'x16' run), and a video of the girls...

 

Sorry... I was thinking about the picture when I named the video. DOH!!!

3 Production Reds - 1 Red Sexlink - 1 Brown Leghorn - 7 Barred Plymouth Rocks - 12 Standard Single Comb Rhode Island Reds - and - 1 Standard Rose Comb Rhode Island Red

FIRST LETS WELCOME YOU HERE.  :welcome

 

Secondly, Your dog is a Fine Doberman Pincher. :thumbsup

 

 

The large chickens are correctly labeled as RIR and  Red Sex Link   The 2 smaller ones,,,,,, The darker one looks like a Game hen to me.  And the lighter one  may very well be the  Brown leghorn Mix.  

 

WISHING YOU BEST  :)

Sorry... I double-posted. I didn't realize the first post had to go through moderation, and thought I'd done something wrong, so I posted it again. I now know that once I get through the "probation" period, my posts will load immediately. I asked for admin to  delete the prior post which was actually my second attempt to post, but it showed up anyway.

 

Max will be proud to know what you think of him. He's 4 years old, and though the video makes him look slender and small, he weighs over 100 lbs is 26" at the shoulder. Sweetest dog I've ever owned, at least towards me and the Mrs. Strangers... not so much. His sister is not as brave as Max, but she's quick to alert Max of anything unusual. 

 

Oh... did I mention I have chickens, too? LOL!!!
