    Hi, I got these two pretty girls for free and was told they were RIR (which I'm guessing they are not) Any ideas one whether they are red sex links or any other breed? The last picture is them as chicks. I know I'll be able to tell more next month but I just wanted some guesses! Also if anyone could confirm they are pullets that would be awesome. They are 5 weeks old and feathered fast so I am thinking they are.

    As babies:

    I'm pretty sure that Maisy is a RIR. That's what my two RIR chicks looked like when they were chicks. I don't know what Piper is, but she sure is pretty. In the picture with them as baby chicks, I think the first one (the light one) looks like a buff orpington to me. I had 7 buff orpington chicks a few years ago and they looked very similar to that. I don't have any idea what the dark one is. I can't wait to see what they end up being!

    Pretty sure they're production Reds.
