    The first is a Silver Laced Wyandotte, The second is a Barred Rock, and the last is a Rhode Island red or New Hapmshire red.

    A good way to sex though not perfect is whether the neck feathers are pointy (roo) or squared-off (hen).

    Here's a pic of our (l to r) SLW, Red X link, RIR, and Black Aussie at 4 weeks, all hens: [​IMG]

    Sorry I couldn't get a pic of my BR as a juvie, that's definitly what your striped one is, but maybe the tan ones are Buff Orps.

    Number three is definitely a Rhode Island Red. It looks just like mine and I would say pullet! Here's a pic of one of my RIR's, who I believe is a roo. We can't quite decide on this one yet.
