    Ok, so after a year of looking through every inch of this site, I finally gave in and brought home 5 hens. I was told I was getting two rir that are a year old, two barred rock pullets 4 month old, and their hatchmate-a supposed rir cock and barred rock hen cross-also possibly a rooster she's white.
    Now, I believe the rir gals are actually production reds. On my intro thread (yes this is my first "real" post) someone mentioned the white one doesn't look like a roo, and he called it a white rock. Did the seller lie to me, Any help?

    Your white bird is a rooster, and he may be a Leghorn still. However, the black/off colored feathers in him make me think he is a leghorn mix instead. Your red hens are Red Sex-Links, not production reds or Rhode Island Reds. I'd need better photos of your barred birds in order to tell you what sex/breed they are.
