    My name is Scott and I am a chicken-holic..lol! I am fairly new to raising chickens as I took in 4 grown chickens (3 hens and 1 rooster) a little over a year ago and I have just bought 10 chicks to add to my flock.

    Not totally sure..but 1 (possibly 2) is a red sex-link and I believe the other is a RIR. The rooster I have no clue but he has feathers on his legs and feet...which he hates and pulls them out.

    I just bought 10 chicks from TSC to add to my flock. 6 pullets and 4 Bantams which I don't know what breed any are.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. You definitely have a Red Sex Link (the hen with the white tail feathers), and your rooster is a Light Brahma. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Ok so I have 1 red sex-link. Can you tell what the other 2 are then? They look just like the sex-link other than they have black feathers mixed in on their necks and tail feathers.
