    I'm new to chickens and ordered the Rainbow egg layers special from McMurray hatchery and have no clue on some of the breeds. Help, please?[​IMG][​IMG]

    the brown with white spots all over look like speckled sussex the black and white barred can be barred rocks or cuckoo marans or doms the darker reds look like production reds and the lighter reds might be red sex links the solid light brown head and brown and black bodies might be buttercups or capmines

    single body pictures of each would help

    I basically agree--I see barred rocks (probably, could be marans or dominiques), red sex links, speckled sussex, production reds and what looks like a golden campine.

    Just a note--do you have more space for them? They're quite crowded in the pics and overcrowding will lead to behavioral problems--notable pecking and cannibalism [​IMG]
