    I have absolutely no idea. I thought maybe a red sex link but am uncertain. I also can't figure out the darker ones. I got them from a feed store that bought a mix of 15 breeds from the local hatchery. Thanks in advance!

    The first one looks like a gold laced Wyandotte and the third may be a brown leghorn. Not sure on the others. I'm no expert so hopefully someone else will come along with a bit more of an idea.

    Thanks so much for your responses! Based on the responses, I believe we have 2 Dark Cornish, 1 Brown Leghorn, and 3 Red Sex Link or RIR. I appreciate the help!

    Tell the difference between the RIR and Red sex-links are: Red sex-links (pullets at least) are red with some white, RIRs should be solid red with black tipped tail feathers.
