    I have 5 hens and after much growing they are now outside in their coop. I'm still not sure about breeds. Does anyone have suggestions from the photos? Thanks[​IMG][​IMG]

    The red ones are Rhode Island Reds, not sure what the White one in the back is tho.

    I agree with Critter Crazy the red ones look like the RIR pullets i bought at an auction yeserday. The white one Might be a White Rock or a White Gaint?

    Rhode Island or New Hampshire Red pullets, and the white one looks like a White Rock to me. They are very pretty!

    Okay...white one I am thinking a white rock...as it does not appear to be big enough for a leghorn. The reds remind me of my New Hampshire Red. Could be RIRs too. here is my 3 week old NHR looking real scruffy right now

    Actually, aren't Leghorns smaller than Rocks? I know mine are very petite little birds.

    I dunno for sure but every leghorn I have seen as been a bit taller than the others...the chicks are huge compared to rocks and ameraucana... so ?????

    My Califonia White Leghorn is smaller than the Buff Orps and they are the same age.
    Since I can't really see the white one that well I am going to make a guess and say White Leghorn too.
