    I have 6 of these all appear to be developing the same color feathers. RIR? NHR? Production red?

    This one appears maybe Barred Rock or Cuckoo Maran? or something else?

    This one has black feathers coming it as it looks right now. Black Australorp? or something else?

    I got 8 chicks for free so their possible genders and breeds are unknown. I have also 10 silver laced wyandotte pullets.

    The one on top looks to be a Production Red.
    The 2 black ones seems to be Barred Rocks, Marans have white legs.

    awesome. yeah my first thought for the 2 black ones was barred rocks since its like one of the most common breeds found. and the reds i figure they have to be RIR or something similar to that. I just hope they are pullets.
