    Can anyone tell me what breeds these are? I bought four brown and 2 white at TSC in Greenwood, IN at the end of March. I think they said the white ones are Leghorn but not sure. I have looked at pictures her and the brown one looks like Red Sex-link to me but I have no idea what that means, lol. If you need more pictures, let me know and I will happily take more at any angle you need.

    Yes, the red one is a red sex-link. They go by different names...Red Stars, Cinnamon Queens, Gold Comets. Generally they are a cross between a Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire Red rooster and a white hen...a Delaware for instance. They are great birds!!

    Youre correct. red sex link & leghorn. Sex links are essentially a cross breed. I think Red sex-links are a cross between a Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire rooster and a White Rock

    Thanks for your replies. When I saw the list of breeds it looked like hundreds and some looked the same to me. I am sure they didn't call them sex-links at the store. Now it makes sense to me.

    It turns out the the white ones are not Leghorns. I started getting brown eggs and did some more searching. Mine have red ear lobes and look more like White Plymouth Rocks now.
