    My son got some birds last summer/fall, and I'm trying to ID them.

    The rosster came thrown in with a batch of guineas he got from the feed store he was working at. He said they were supposed to be Rhode Island Reds, but I'm not sure if they are RIR or New Hampshires.

    He got these hens from a breeder at a fair.
    Plymouth Rocks?

    Thanks ramirezframing, I thought that's what we had for hens, but wasn't positive on the roosters.

    They were all chicks when we got them. The roosters are about 5-6 months old, the hens (pullets?) are about 3 to 3-1/2 months old.

    Thanks y'all! We have 4 other hens over at a friends farm that my wife bought a couple years ago, but she has no idea what she bought. I'll have to get some pics of those and let y'all ID them also! [​IMG]
