Can anyone tell me what breed and gender they are?

    They look like Rhode Island Reds or red sex links (red stars) they look like they are both pullets.

    TSC likes to sell "red layers" which are usually RIR, Production Red, New Hampshire Red and red sex lime pullets all dumped into the bin. All birds shown look like pullets, darker look like production red and the lighter likely a sex link

    That looks like a cockerel. The dark red ones look like rhode island reds and the orange one looks like a red sex link.

    Cool, thanks for the replies. I just need 3 layers and I'll have more eggs than I can eat, but I like the brown, free range eggs the best. This is good news, thanks again.

    Can you tell me what breed and gender this little one, or is it still way too young.

    (We think he's a wild jungle fowl, where we live they are wild and common, and we adopted it when it's mother didn't come for it. He was standing in the road, so we got him before he could be squashed)

    He's now about 13-14 days old, and maybe 1-2 when we got him.

    Yes that's what we think. However, due to the fact that many domestic chickens also have escaped and are escaping on this island, he's most likely not pure. The problem is its gender.
