Are these the same breed?

    I have 2 red and white hens. I am wondering if I should just call them both the same thing or if they are different, due to coloring, leg color and different combs.

    Yes, they are. [​IMG] They can be called red sex-links, red stars, golden comets, cinnamon queens, etc. We have some that are just like that(they are sisters) one is named Linda and she looks just like the second picture, and the other is Cinnamon, and she looks similar to the first picture. But yes, they are most likely the same breed. [​IMG]

    Good to know, thanks.

    So it doesn't matter then if they had different parents, or have different features, they are all just lumped into one catagory...Red Sex Link?

    Makes it easy to remember lol
