    fHi. We adopted these chickens and rooster in August. There are 11 hens in different brown colors. I have tried to figure out what they are. I just know they are goood layers. But since theywere never handled. They are quite skittish. We try to pick them up. But we don’t want to scare them. Anyway. Any idea what breed? 49813566-9872-486D-A84C-0E2C3CDB474D.jpeg C84B979A-D28F-4F48-85C2-AD23CF40B0D0.jpeg 385A8B77-D459-4F53-AD58-03DDE11A36C3.jpeg CD60B4D5-4950-481E-B712-482509C16BC2.jpeg

    The red with white feathers are red sex links.
    The barred rooster is either a black sex link or a barred rock; with his feathers so rough I'm leaving that open.
    The white is probably a white rock.

    Red sex links, most likely... Cinnamon queen, red star, Golden Buff, Golden Comet.. depending on which hatchery they use different names.

    Looks like 1 white Rock hen, and a Dominique rooster (can't fully make out comb/skin color).

    If you need to handle or inspect without chasing... doing so after they go to roost int he evening and keeping it dim using a headlamp or flashlight should help keep them calm and in their place. :)

    My guess is Rhode Island Reds, molting at the moment. The white one and black and white, I don't know.

    They look like red sex links, and a Dominique rooster. The white one I'm not sure what it could be.

    Hi Hannah
    The red hen to the left in the first 2 pictures and at the back of the last 2 pictures does not look like a red sexlink. Could be a lightly colored production red or a new hampshire red.
    Has black tail feathers and no white on it.

    White and red are red sex links, white and black is a production red, white is a white rock, and I can't tell what kind of comb the rooster has.

    I see several red sex links, a possible New Hampshire red, I'm not sure about the white one, I'm also not sure about Spike. Can you try to get a good picture of his comb?
