    When we bought these, we were told they are New Hampshire Reds:

    Here they are present day (about 10 weeks old). The front right and the one right above:

    The other two (the left-most and the one in back) I believe are Black Stars/Black Sex Links.

    They SHOULD be all hens. What do you all think??

    Thank you!

    Wow, I think you guys hit it on the head! I just needed to be pointed in the right direction! [​IMG] I don't really care what they are as long as I know... [​IMG] I'll stop waiting for them to turn light red. LOL!

    Yes, they are dark cornish. I have several. In fact I have 2 that just hatched out babies! Mine are decent layers.
