    The first two look like Silkie or Silkie crosses. The red ones look like red sex links. I'm not 100% tho and could be wrong, but those would be my guesses.

  7. Yep, first two are silkies, that second one looks like a bit of a cross, other two i don't know.

    Is it just me or are these pictures HUGE? Loading this page was like attack of the 50 foot chickens.

    The first one looks like a silkie with the real fine feathering and that walnut comb.
