    Hello all!

    I am a newby, and here are 2 of our first 4 chickens (2 roosters had to go to a farm).

    Can anyone tell me what breed they are?

    They are not quite 12 weeks old.

    I was given them free as 2 week old chicks from the hatchery that visited my children's day care centre.

    Appreciate any help.

    I agree, they look like red sexlinks. I've seen a few with that much white, even with a bit more.

    There are different combos that will give you Red sex links. These look like NHR X Delaware or White Rock, otherwise I don't think you'd get so much white.

    My Red sex link is much darker and has a little black in her tail but she is the largest in the flock and lays the largest eggs.
