    Also, the (third) one is a Buff Orpington, looks like a hen? [​IMG]

    How old are they? I can't help you with the breeds but I'd say they are girls.

    Look like ISA Browns (Red sexlink) hens to me, but I'm no expert

    Sorry, they are 10 weeks old (today, in fact!) If it helps, both were very yellow as baby chicks.

    Looks like some sort of red sex link or production reds. Couple look like buff orps. All pullets.

    They are all pullets. A couple of them are Buff Orpingtons, the others are Production Reds and/or hatchery-quality Rhode Island Reds. They are NOT Red Sex-Links, as they have no white on them at all.

    More likely they are red production because they were very yellow the first few weeks or are RIR the same way? Thanks!

    Production Reds are red gene crosses between New Hampshires and Rhode Island Reds, so depending on the genetics it could be the same as a Rhode Island Red.

    Need some better photos with natural lighting. Can't tell if those are Buff Orpingtons, Production Reds, or something else.

    agree with junebuggena - lighting is bad, looks like a red heat lamp
