    X2 on the RIR, RIR, Ancona, and SLW. They are all getting fairly red combs and wattles already, Beach is maybe a little behind the other two, so hopefully the three will get going with the egg laying in the next month or so for you.

    EEs are mixes, so they could theoretically look like anything, but with single combs, yellow legs, and the red color, I vote they are RIR or some sort of production red bird... if they lay green eggs I'll change my mind :)

    I agree with everyone else about the breeds. I don't think the two red birds are EEs, either. They don't have a single sign of being EEs, but all of the features of Rhode Island Reds or Production Reds. You'll know for sure when they lay eggs, I guess.

    They look like you'll have eggs within a couple of weeks.
