First one is a Buff Orpinton. The darker red feathered ones look like Rhode Island Reds and the lighter red look like New Hampshire Reds to me. I picked up two each of those breeds this spring and they are the friendliest birds I've ever had.

my NHRs actually all had darker feathers around that age

Maybe the store gave me the wrong breed...

Buckeyes have pea combs.





They're exactly as labelled.


Also one must consider, yes, New Hampshires (no red in the name, it's something hatcheries made up) can vary a lot because a lot of them likely have red mixed in them or are just simply so far from the standard, all they really are is "orange or red laying chickens."
