    (photo on the top) I got this red (buff) girl as a plus one when I ordered my chicks last September. I have a guess as to what I think she is, but I know there is a lot more experience on this forum than I have. Any thoughts would be appreciated. (photo on the bottom, closest hen to fence) Also, I have a black hen, slightly smaller than my Australorp but very similar coloring. I believe this is a "pea comb"? Any ideas on her? She was sold to me as a Dominique but clearly is not. Thanks!

    Red hen is a Red Sexlink. Black looks to be a crossbred. Does the black have feathered feet?

    I agree red is definitely a red sex link or some people call them golden comets.
    What color feet does the black one have?

    The black one has dark feet. Like a dark gray color.

    The black one almost looks like a black sex link or a jersey giant. It looks kinda like my black sex link. Maybe. I'm not an expert but it's just an idea.

    The black one is an easter egger or olive egger.
