Please help identify the breed of my chickens

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm new and i don't know much about breed. My family just brought them home from a local pet store one night.

 

They are pretty big now.  I don't know how many weeks but i think 8-10 weeks?

 

Thank you.

The black one maybe a Black Australorp, the white one maybe a White Leghorn, the red ones could either be: Red sex-links (I think you have one of those), Production Reds, or Hatchery quality RIRs.

White Leghorn ?

 

Is it a small size breed by any chance ?   She is smaller than the other 4 hens for some reason.

Yes, a White Leghorn is a medium size bird, so that may be the difference, or that chick was just a little younger than the others as the feed stores get multiple shipments.

 

I agree your photo indicates a White Leghorn, Black Sexlink or Australorp, 1 Red Sexlink (white trim) and 2 Production Reds (all red/orange).
