    The combs on the other two are tiny and baby pink compared to the brown and white one. His is big and red already and he is the smallest/youngest one!

    Thank you for any feedback. I love them already.

    Also, I have no idea about the one behind the brown and white one either. They look like siblings and have tiny combs. Any ideas would be welcome. I am new at this but LOVE it!

    I think your brown and white one is some kind of sex link/mix...like an Amberlink or a Golden Comet. Not sure on sex.

    The one behind it looks like a Barred Rock pullet to me.

    IF the one behind IS a Barred Plymouth Rock it screams Roo at me, just because it's soooo light colored and I don't see any wash on legs..

    Thank you so much. I will try to get a better photo of the black and white ones. I have a BR hen (I think its a hen, no eggs yet) and they don't look too much alike but I actually would be thrilled if it was a Roo since I don't have one.

    The black and white does not look like a barred rock, pullet or roo. What type of comb does it have?

    White and red one is a boy for sure.Barred one dos not appear to be pure breed so I can not say boy or girl from this picture

    They have itty bitty combs. I posted another photo. It was hard to get them because I needed to keep them in the shade as it was so hot today. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it.

    Is it a straight-comb, rose-comb, pea-comb?? That would help determine the breed. I agree that they are mixed breeds, I think the 2 in the back (black and whites) are pullets, but I can't see the combs very well. Any idea how old they are?
