    Just taking a guess. The black one looks like my black sex link pullets, so I think a black star. The red one looks like a red star or some kind of red sex link. [​IMG] I see something called a Golden Buff. That might be your girl.

    I'm guessing black star, and New Hampshire Red.

    Does the top one have a face that looks like a dinosaur? She looks like a dark cornish to me. The second, who knows? [​IMG]

    not trying to sound rude, but what did you order from the hatchery?
    If they threw in extra bodies, then you can call and see what they were tossing in extra that day.
    It could really help you narrow the field down.
    When I ordered from mcmurray, they threw in a bunch of extra chicks (9), and i called and they said they threw in a bunch of red star roosters, which are just red sex link crosses.

    edited to say: my red star roosters were white. females are red

    I didn't order I don't know. (I didn't take it as I bought them from someone and they weren't sure what they were because they were extras...and I am not able to go back and ask so that's why I'm guessing...

    Your black chicken looks a lot like one I have. I'm not sure what she is either! I thought she was a partridge rock, but her head looks just like yours.

    That second one looks a lot like my RIR/ BO crosses. The same color feathers anyway. Very pretty coloring in my opinion. [​IMG]
