    On those sexlinks, the first two do look like RSL, but the third looks like a buff, maybe BO?

    The last one does have the coloring of a Buff Orpington. Right color legs, right color beak... Is she noisy, but super sweet? If so... definitely a Buff Orp!

    ranny looks like she could be a frank based on that pic looks like a much wider comb than the other two light brahmas.... maybe you will have a breeding trio!

    Unfortunately if Lucy and Calloway are sex-links, then they are more than likely roosters. Calloway MIGHT be a hen but Lucy is definitely a roo based on the coloration. Guess you could call him Lucifer, Lucian, Luther, or Luke [​IMG] The last one does look like a BO. And the first three are Buff Brahmas like you guessed [​IMG]

    Honestly I don't see any roos. And Lucy (and Calloway) is a red sex link (Golden Comet) and Sunny looks like a BO! (Buff Orpington) [​IMG] As far as others claiming the Franny is a roo because of the comb, judging by the title I would assume that these are hatchery chicks so they will all vary slightly from the "standard".
