    They're all hens, the brownish ones look like Rhode Island Reds, the golden one is a Bufforpington

    The red ones look like production reds.

    They are right at 18 weeks. Getting close to laying I hope.

    2 Production Red pullets. New Hampshire are lighter, more orange, and have columbian pattern ticking at tail and neck hackles. New Hampshire Red is just another name for Production Red. There is no New Hampshire Red breed...that is a mix production line.

    The Buff Orpington...I'd like to see a side profile to look for saddle feathers. Rather gangly looking for a hen. Buff Orps are notorious for slow developing males. Checking feather pattern would help.
