    Bought all of these at local feed stores... I've heard loads of people telling me they are different breeds. I'd like some thoughts from the pros on here now that I've had them for a couple weeks. [​IMG]

    I think you are right on all counts. the first has a lot of red for a black sex link but i think that is what it is.

    #1 EE - green legs

    #2 Black Astrolorp - that's my guess

    #3 Partridge Rock - I have 2 PR hens and they looked just like that as babies.



    Hope that helped [​IMG]

    Lulu and Peanut look like Australorps. Although if the bottom of their feet are yellow, then they are jersey giants.
    Agnes does indeed look like a Welsummer. But brown leghorns also have the same look. If the earlobes are red, it's a welsummer. If they are white, it's a brown leghorn.
    No idea on Miffy, but it's not a black sex link. Are her legs greenish as they look in the picture? If so, then I guess EE.
