    I mixed them up! Help!
    I think the Rhode island red pullets are supposed to be darker than the New Hampshires but having a hard time figuring it out.
    Also Im positive the biggest cockrel (the only one that's 8 month old) is a NHR but not sure about the smaller one. RIR? Im kinda thinking there might be 3 cockrels-?

    Yes, your New Hampshire Reds are the lighter ones. I see two roosters; both look like Rhode Island Reds to me, but I would be able to tell better if you took individual photos of each rooster.

    Two roosters is the most I see in one picture. The NHR should be lighter, but with hatchery birds, the NHR and RIR often look a lot alike if not pretty much identical, so you may not really be able to tell them all apart for sure.

    The first two pics are (supposed to be) the 8mo.old New Hampshire Red. I didn't get them from hatchery or from the same person.
