    I hatched 3 chicks out and they aee now growing into lovely chickens. I also received 3 older chicks from a lady I trade eggs with.

    I was wondering if anyone could identify the red chickens the lady gave me?

    Just a note, the 3 Barred Rock looking chickens are the 3 I hatched out. I am still not sure what breed the darker black chickens are bc of my mixed flock.

    Thank you so much for any help!

    Sorry about blurry pictures, I was trying to take photos of the running chickens.

    Also, sorry about my messy run. I am moving and in the process of cleaning out storage buildings.

    It looks like those 3 are all barred rocks, but one looks like a cockerel. How old are they? And can you get some close up pics of the barred rocks?
    As for the red ones, they could be a mix breed, but they could also be:
    New Hampshire’s or
    Production reds

    agree completely. Except, I'm going to say that one of the BR IS a cockerel.
