    OK here goes...I am trying to find out what my girls are...
    All I know for sure is that I got them from a local hatchery and they call them the layer variety..so on hatch day they take the excess of the layers and made my order..

    I am almost positive these girls are Columbian Rock X Red...(Red ?? red what?..I dont know but I think Red sex Link)


    I think this one is R.I. Red X Columbian Rock


    This one is either a Black sex link OR a New Hampshire X Barred rock


    so what do you think?

    You've got yourself a couple of Delawares, a production red (or hatchery RIR), and a black sex-link.

    By the way, a black sex-link is made by mating a New Hampshire red or RIR rooster over a barred rock hen. [​IMG]

    The first 2 are Delewares, not Brahmas. Brahmas have feathered feet.
