    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    The first one looks like a RIR. The second ones are defiantly brahmas.

    They are lovely!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. The top one is a Production Red hen. The bottom two are Light Brahmas. The first breed I ever had were Light Brahmas (about 50 years ago). Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    Top is probably a Buckeye, as it appears to have a pea comb instead of a single comb (which Production Reds and Rhode Island Reds have). The other birds are Light Brahmas.

    Your first bird (the red one) is a Buckeye, since it has a pea comb (RIRs and Production Reds have single combs). The other two are Light Brahmas. Beautiful birds!
