    Can anyone tell me the breed on these black chickens? Also, how old do these RIR look?[​IMG]

    I have a 3 month old chick that looks about like your RIR's. Don't know about the black ones.

    Your black ones look like possible Black Old English Game, or mixes. I think that your Rhode Island Reds are around 6 weeks old.

    The Rhode Island Reds look about 6 weeks old to me. As for the black birds, they may be Black Australorps if they're large fowl sized, or Old English Game bantams.
