    First, we thank you all in advance for your guesses. We're most interested in determining sex, but are also interested in breed/age guesses. So, what are they?


    First picture is Big Red with Flour (white):

    Second picture is Big Red (eating) and Zebra (the larger red bird)

    Third picture is Uno (black/white), we were told she was a game hen. She is the only one who has laid an egg:

    Uno is a Old English Game. Looks like a Golden Duckwing Old English Game but it has a lot more white.

    Quote:X2 and a rooster. The red ones are pullets, not sure the breed, perhaps production reds . I love the little silver OEG bantam hen!

    The red ones are New Hampshire. The one in the first pic looks like a pullet. I can't see the other red one well enough to say. See the black marks on her neck and tail? NH for sure I have several growing up and some laying. Not a prod red or Cherry Eggs I have both... NH are prettier IMHO. They don't have the black marks usually.

    I think the red ones are New Hampshires. Flour is a silkie mix...possibly a roo. (I would think with a comb that big it would be laying if it were a pullet, but I could be wrong.) Not sure what Uno is.

    x3 Zebra may be a Production Red or a New Hampshire.
