    Don't know about the roo, but the hens look like New Hamshire, Rhode Island Red, and Barred Plymouth Rock. I'm kind of new at this.

    Your hens look to be New Hampshire(gold), Barred Rock(black & white), and Rhode Island Red(red). That cockeral though has me stumped. Looks like a mix, I see red in his hackle feathers.

    What a second, your barred hen has blue legs. Maybe she's a mix as well?

    Your three hens are: a sexlink hybred of a type Like a comet or other red sexlink, production red and ? cockoo marans or a different type of sexlink hybred. The barring pattern is wrong for Barred rock. So are the legs. Gloria Jean

    That blond girl looks like the eggs I hatched from a Buff Orpington hen that was fertilized by a Rhode Island roo.

    Thank you all!!
    Yes, my little boy is a bit of an oddity. He has red/copper feathers in his hackle & he's starting to get a few on his back. He's a great lover & fighter [​IMG]

    I have a young roo that looks alot like yours. Mine is from a K5 hatching project and I don't know anything about the mixes kept at the farm that provided our eggs. Another member had posted a similar roo and referred to the "patented" Black Rocks that they look very similar to. Here's mine:
