    These are all about 4 weeks old. Can anyone tell me what breeds they might be now that they are feathering out?

    Looks like you have a two hatchery quality Rhode Island Reds and one Barred Rock, I would keep an eye on them and post again when they are around 8-10 weeks to guess there gender.

    Actually, the first two are different breeds. I have two of the first one and three of the second. The first has dark colors on their wings and face and head, and the second have large patches of creamish white and a light red.
    I'm almost positive the third is a barred rock.

    Here is a picture of each of the red breeds at about one week old.

    Ok, thanks for the chick pictures! The first one is a Production red then and the second one is the same as my first guess.

    The red chicks look like Production Reds. The barred chick is a Barred Rock.
