    What can you tell me about these? I think #2 is a RIR and I think #1 and #3 are Comets. When I compare them the the RIR Rooster I have they all look like hens. Let me know what you think they are!

    A person had them and didnt want them anymore. Got them for cheap and can always sell them and make a profit.

    They look like girls to me. I'm not sure of the breed on #1, I think a fully mature leghorn hen should have a larger comb than that. #2 looks like a RIR or production red and #3 is a red sex link.

    Could you post another picture of the white and red one? The second looks like a RIR and the third is a Red Star (a.k.a Red Sex-Link). Your Red Star is definitely a hen. [​IMG]

    Full body pictures of #1 & 2 would help us better to help you.
    1 looks like it could be a white rock.
    2 looks like it could be a production red.
    #3 is a red sexlink hen.
    At this point I think all are hens, but the body pics will tell more.
