    These are not the best pics I could not find my good camera but here are 2 of my new hens. No names yet. The Rhode Island red has no beak they clipped it....Why do that? I feel bad for her.
    RIR and EE (new)

    I took this EE girl because she looks just like my old chicken Maggie and she was hatched out this past spring and "dad" was my old Rooster Charlie
    New girl

    Your brown bird looks like a red sexlink, and the De beak doesn't actually look too bad.

    Really sexlink huh I am not sure was mom was, but dad is the rooster shown Charlie. I am bad at guessing breeds but my friend is giving away his birds so I took 3 yesterday. I think the polish I picked up is a rooster though my rooster is mating him [​IMG]

    LOL You made me think of the joke that someone posted in the "Games, Jokes, and Fun" Section! Here it is:

    PLEASE READ IT!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    An old farmer decided it was time to get a new rooster for his hens. The current rooster was still doing an okay job, but he was getting on in years and the farmer figured getting a new rooster couldn't hurt.

    So he buys a new cock from the local rooster emporium, and turns him loose in the barnyard.

    Well, the old rooster sees the young one strutting around and he's a little worried. So, they're trying to replace me, thinks the old rooster- I've got to do something about this! He walks up to the new bird and says, 'So you're the new stud in town?

    I bet you really think you're hot stuff don't you? Well I'm not ready for the chopping block yet.

    I'll bet I'm still the better bird. And to prove it, I challenge you to a race around that hen house over there.

    We'll run around it ten times and whoever finishes first gets to have all the hens for himself.'

    Well, the young rooster was a proud sort, and he definately thought he was more than a match for the old guy.

    'You're on', he said, 'and since I'm so great, I'll even give you a head start of half a lap. I'll still win easy!'

    So the two roosters go over to the henhouse to start the race with all the hens gathering to watch. The race begins and all the hens start cheering the old rooster on.

    After the first lap, the old rooster is still maintaining his lead. After the second lap, the old guy's lead has slipped a little- but he's still hanging in there.

    Unfortunately, the old rooster's lead continues to slip each time around, and by the fifth lap he's just barely in front of the young fella.

    By now the farmer has heard the commotion. He runs into the house, gets his shotgun and runs into the barnyard figuring a fox or something is after his chickens.

    When he gets there, he sees the two roosters running around the henhouse, with the old rooster still slightly in the lead.

    He immediately takes his shotgun, aims, fires, and blows the young rooster away.

    As he walks away slowly, he says to himself.....

    'darn, that's the third gay rooster I've bought this month.'
