    A friend of ours bought too many fluffy butts at TSC, and gave us three of them when they were already almost fully feathered out; and couldn't remember the breed! No eggs yet so I can't even use egg color to help and My curiosity is getting the better of me! I'm 99% sure they aren't RIR, and about 75% sure they are New Hampshires.

    They are super friendly little girls, not very skittish at all, my Easter eggers will run from a shadow, but the only time these three got a bit scared is when a metal rake scraped across some rocks. Help?

    (Left is Stella, right is Athena who is a bit lighter, and Chickaletta is at the bottom) Stella and Chickaletta are closest in color and this picture makes them seem a bit browner and not as... Bright?

    Red pullets with white under feathers/tips and tails are red sex links.

    You're welcome. I think you'll be very happy with them, they're wonderful layers, huge brown eggs.
