    We are not possitive what breed this is. We think Black Austrolop?? The other is Buff Orpinton(sp?).

    This one a little more difficult. Is this a RIR or a New Hampshire Red?

    here are a couple of my girls, check the bottom of the feet, if they are pink, BA, if they are yellow, Jersey Giant

    yes to the BO

    and I have a Production Red (as I was told) that looks like yours:

    yeah, production red is the likely case, definitely not NH or heritage RIR

    As said by everyone else. [​IMG]


    Also, New Hampshire is the breed, no Red in the name.

    Your dark burgandy hen with the black tail feathers looks like a Buckeye(not RIR or NH! I have a buckeye and that's what she looks like, she's getting darker as she gets older. She should be a mahogany color eventually.

    what kind of comb does your red one have? If it is single, I still say Production Red, a Buckeye has a pea comb, and is extremely rare

    Quote:x2, yeah, now that I look again the pic is a little blurry, at first glace it looked like a pea comb. You will have an critically endangered hen if it's a Buckeye. Try to get her mated to another Buckeye if you can have roosters![​IMG]
