    Hi I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what breed chickens i have. I have been looking online but i am stumped since there are some breeds that look alike. I got a variety pack of chicks ( 3 colours, yellow chicks, black chicks and a light brown) . I am new to all this chicken talk lol. id like to know so I can figure out when they will start laying eggs. So here are a few pictures of my chicken. They are about 18 weeks old. Any info would help [​IMG]

    The chicken in the 2nd pic is black but in the light her feathers are a green/blue ( this one is my favorite breed)
    Here is a pic of its back

    next one is white with black around the bum and neck. They were yellow when they were chicks

    Production red, black sex link and the last is probably a Colombian Plymouth rock.

    The first bird is a Production Red and the second bird is a Black Sex Link. The third bird is either a Delaware or a Columbian Rock depending on whether or not there is barring in the black neck and tail feathers (barring = Delaware, solid black = Columbian Rock). Can you get a profile pic of its neck and tail?
