    I am having trouble identifying which birds are the RIR and which are the Buckeye (hens and rooster). Can somebody help me?

    Your rooster is a RIR.

    In the last pic, I think the hen in the back is a Red and in the front is a Buckeye. The easiest difference is the comb. Reds have a straight comb, Buckeyes have a pea comb.

    I say at least the Rooster is a Rhode Island because of the comb :3

    I agree. You can tell them apart by comb types and feather under color. Rhode Island Reds should have single combs and red under color. Buckeyes should have pea combs and slate under color. :)
