    I got them out of the pullet bin at TSC. What breed do you think these are? I am think Production reds as they are very small and layed at about 5 months. Very good layers.

    The three hens are some type of Sexlink, ( Red Sexlink, Golden Comet, etc) Pro. Reds and NH Reds would be red and black instead of red and white.

    The roo in the back looks like a mutt.

    TSC sometimes carries ISA browns (red sex links). An ISA brown is a RIR x RIW.

    The cockerels are white, generally with redish feathers mixed in, and the pullets are generally a red color with lighter colored tail feathers, and some lighter patterns in the feathering. I have 12 ISA browns, and they all look EXACTLY like this. [​IMG]

    White is a roo, reds are girls. The chicks are yellow (roos) and redish (pullets)

    Red SL roosters are white. They're all the same breed.

    They are the sex link chicken that is a cross between a RIR roo and a RIW female. I have the same exact birds.
