    I think you got lucky as they appear to be girls, at 6 weeks old. I don't see any really red combs, at all! [​IMG]

    This is a guess (I'm not great at guessing breeds) but I'm thinking New Hampshire for the reddish one and possibly Australorp for the black ones.

    I agree with everybody else on them being girls. At that age my Australorp Roo had a very red comb and wattle.

    every time i check back and get another,yeah girls reply, i feel like i could cry!! im soooo glad i shouldnt have to worry about if i have a bunch of roos and cant keep them!! these little guys have really turned me into a chicken lover!! my husband thought id really lost it when i insisted he look very closely at thier eyes. i told him, did you know how much soul and personality a chicks eyes have!! i was hooked!! im hoping the black chicks are BA, they are pretty,and they will match my new BR chicks!! lol

    Your two black ones look an awful lot like my black australorp girls did at 6 weeks. Don't have a bird like your red one, so I'm not going to offer an opinion on it.

    I agree, look like girls to me, but then again, as my sig says (this should be my mantra) I'm no expert!
