    I was wanting to know if anyone knew the type of chickens I have. They are two months old. The lady that I got them from said I have a Ameraucana (the one on the right) and I am pretty sure I have a Barred as well.

    Welcome to BYC! Yes the barred one looks like a Barred Plymouth Rock. The red could be a Rhode Island Red or maybe a Red Sex Link? I don't have any idea about the pretty one in the left foreground...but some of the experts will be along to tell you about all of them for sure.
    Be sure to check out the Learning Center, and good luck!

    The Barred Rock is there, the Ameraucana is really an Easter Egger (often sold as Ameraucanas), the black one in the front looks like a Black sex-link, and the red one looks like a Red sex-link.
