    I built my first run and coop last year. I wanted to start with older chickens then but now I want to learn to raise chicks. Although I promised myself I would only get breeds I wanted... I brought home 6 cute little girls that I am not sure what they are. I could not help it but I do want to learn about them and am excited. I got two of each and I am pretty sure two are Red Rangers... not sure about the black ones.

    Can anyone help?

    Your black ones are Barred Rocks and your others may be some type of red or maybe Buff Orpingtons. I have a hard time sometimes telling these apart in pictures. [​IMG]

    The black one is a Barred rock and the reds one are either a sex-link or production red.
     
  6. The black one is a barred rock
    The second one is a is a brown or Red Cross and
    The last one is a is a brown.
     
  7. The last ones look like buff orpingtons but I think that they are isa brown because they have two stripes.
