    The 2 on the right are columbian wyandottes (they have rose combs right?). The other, maybe a New Hampshire (or mix)..?

    The two are columbian wyandottes, the third one may be a project buff columbian wyandotte or maybe a poor buff wyandotte but it looks like a wyandotte. Did I say wyandotte enough times, lol. They should turn out to be well patterned. Did you get them from a breeder?

    Thanks so much for answering! My husband and I are very new to chickens, they are ruling us at the moment. We did buy from a breeder but then we saw a picture of a Sussex and thought they looked similar. Thanks

    Cool. Wyandottes are a good breed to begin with, most of the time they are calm.
