    Generally red pullets are red sexlinks- that's what yours look like.

    Rhode Island Red, New Hampshire Red, Red Star, or any mixture thereof, generically called "Production Reds." :)

    I am new to the whole chicken thing, so I am probably wrong in saying this (please no one bash me like I said I am new) but the first one kind of looks like a buff orpington.

    my friend said she looks just like her BO as a baby. I would be over joyed (as would my son!!) But either way, we love them!

    I have 6 red pullets from TSC that I purchased about 2 weeks ago. Still waiting to figure out what they are...I am still so new to this chicken adventure that I didn't know that "red pullet" wasn't a breed... LOL! I will post pics tomorrow when I can take them outside. We have named them all...we have Bossy (named by me for her obvious "top of the pecking order" status), Puffy (named by my 11 year old son), Pirhana (named by my 6 year old son), and then Kung Pao, Marsala, and Yolko (named by my husband and his sick sense of humor).
