The red one is Gold (red) Sex Link girl. White one is Leghorn or White Rock. It can be male Golden Sex Link but I lean toward first 2 breeds.It is too early to tell it's sex.

By the way, the white one is real solid. I was hoping these were white leghorns, but they may be rocks.

Those legs on that white one are huge! I vote white rock and production red/gold comet/red sex-link.

I live with my partner and our daughter in the foothills of NC. We LOVE our critters!

Cowed to chicken math and sharing my bedroom with 8 BBS Ameraucana mixes.

If so, are white rocks and red sex-links good layers?

Does rock mean plymouth rocks?

Red Sex Links are one of the best brown egg lears. White Rocks are not bad at all.

The red one looks like a red star sex link. Not hardly an expert though! White one... a leghorn?

I am crazy about a lot of things. Chickens, reading, writing stories, and most importantly my King, Jesus. :D
