    The first one looks like a rhode island red or production red. I'm not sure about the other two though, sorry!

    Maybe orpingtons... [​IMG]

    New Hampshire, or some type of production red, which basically means a red hen who is a great layer.

    Looks like Golden Sex Links, or also called Red Stars, etc. (Sex links usually crossing a RIR with a RI white or other chicken).

    I used to have GSLs that looked like that.

    Quote:Here are my girls- you can see the GSLs in the pic- I sold them though.

    The color of the ISA browns, Red Stars, GSLs, etc. can vary from lighter in color like yours to darker in color like mine.

    They are not Gold Sex-Links, they're Production Reds.



    Sex-Links have white on the neck and tail.

    The hen in the first picture is either a Rhode Island or Production Red, and the next 2 look like New Hampshire Reds.
