    Hello BackYard Chickens,

    I hope you are all doing well. It has been a while since I have posted in here. Just to recap:

    We bought our chickens from our local hardware store 03/25/16.
    They said the chicks were about a week old or so then.
    They said the chicks were all ISA Browns and pullets.

    We welcome and would love your input regarding breed and what sex you think our ladies are.



    Thank you so much!

    Have a wonderful day,

    Sarah*

    Thinking Barred Rock, RIR, & Golden Comet. I have a very similar mix from my feed store. They called them asst. heavy breeds. (Brown egg layers).

    The light brown ones look like Pioneers, the red with white are red sexlinks (Isa Brown), the darker red is a hatchery Rhode Island Red, and the black and white ones are Barred Rocks. All look like pullets.

    agree with junebuggena for the Isa Browns and the Barred rocks and the RIR. I have no idea what a Pioneer looks like

    Pioneers, Dixies, and Rainbows are all different hatchery names for the same thing. A randomly bred; dual purpose type bird that is similar to what pioneers and settlers would have had 200 years ago.
