    this one is all red. Not particularly a dark brown color. I have others with some white on the head and face and a little red in the wings. I assume those are sex links. These all came in a rainbow layer mix.

    A red sex link hen would have some white in the feathers near it's tail and lower back. The one in the photo looks like a RIR or Production Red.

    The ones with white on the head may be speckled sussex. What color are their legs?

    It could be a Hatchery Type Rhode Island Red or Hatchery Type New Hampshire.

    Production Red. And just to give you a headsup - That multicolored, green legged Easter Egger in the left of one of those photos is a boy.

    Am I correct to assume that the black one is a black sex link???? Kinda looks like the ones that I have a pullet with the same gold lacing around her neck..
