    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.

    Buckeyes have pea combs. [​IMG]




    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." [​IMG]
