    I have some unknown chickens and chicks that I would like to get ID. I think the hens are Rhode Island Reds, but I noticed there are other breeds very similar.

    They didn't have very good signs when I bought these chicks.

    A rooster my nephew bought. Not a very good picture sorry.

    chicks are unknown though the chick with the beard is an easter egger
    easter egger rooster
    the rest of the pics show red sex links (also you can not breed these together and have more sex links as these are a one time breeding)

    Can't tell on the chicks.
    Need better pic on the rooster but ee is a good guess for now.
    Red hens with white tails are red sex links. The white roo with the red wing is a male sex link.
