    Hello,
    Just wondering if somebody could tell me what kind of hens these are? When I bought them at TSC I was just told that they were red pullets.

    The 2 to the very left are Gold Stars, also known as Red-Sex-Links. They are what TSC most commonly sell for brown egg layers. Do you need to know the other breeds?

    Thank you very much! The other 2 in the picture above are brown leghorns. I do have one more that I am not sure about, but I believe that she is a golden comet?

    She could either be a golden comet or a real like red sexlink. I've had a few that were quite light in color.
