    The first one is a black sexlink cockerel, with that parentage.
    The red is probably a Red Ranger.
    The last one could be a black sexlink pullet.

    I could really use some more layers and sex-links and red rangers are good layers. I think the one that might be a red ranger may actually be a roo though. Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Both of these were labeled "Heavies" not what I consider sex-links/rangers to be.
