    Any ideas as to breed / sex? Current Craigslist posting - someone bought for "fun" now doesn't want them, they are getting too big... They look "familiar" to me, possibly Araucana's and RIR, but I'm a novice at this... THANKS!!

    Looks like a Frizzle of some type in the middle there. That and Easter Eggers.

    Cynthia thanks! Care to guess at the gender? I don't need anymore "crowing hens"...!! I feel bad for the babies though - looks like they've been in a cardboard box eating who knows what, she said she bought them in May.

    the pictures are a bit too pixelized to tell but for the middle one i agree with you, i think it's a RIR. i would say all 3 are pullets because for their size the comb is too small to be a rooster's comb for any of them.

    Not very good at this but if I were going to guess, I would say the two on the outside are Brown Leghorns and the one in the middle maybe a Red Sex Link????

    Do I see little feathered feet peeking out? I think that's two Partridge Cochins and one Red Frizzle Cochin. [​IMG]

    You know, now that I look more closely, the ones on the end do not look like EEs to me, but the middle one is definitely frizzled.

    I agree with others. The middle looks like a red frizzle cochin. Do the two on the outside have feathered legs? If so they are partridge cochins. They are all cute little chicks.
