    We were given these hens by a friend who they were given to and we don't know for sure what kind they are. Any input would be great. From looking at different pictures, I think they are Red sex links.

    I think you're right. They don't look especially young, but should still be good layers.

    We aren't sure how old they are either. They are great hens though. The person who had them wanted to get rid of them and we were happy to get them. About a week or so after we got them, they started laying and haven't stopped.
