    Not sure what breed it is or even how old. So some help is appreciated. [​IMG]

    It could be a RIR or sex-link of some sort. It's a bit of a gamble as far as age goes, you could look at her skin and comb, eye color, etc. Usually the older birds look a little more "washed out" with paler skin and a little less robust colored comb.

    The one with black in her tail could be hatchery New Hampshire, the other production red?

    They look like generic red hatchery birds. No specific breed, per se, but they're often called production reds.

    On of them escaped this morning and is now gone. And my lovely neighbor though it would be best while me and dbf tried to capture them to hurry up and drive there little off road vehicle up and down by my house to scare her off completely. They were new birds I had just gotten and I only managed to capture 3 of the 4.
