    The first one looks like maybe a Red Star (sex linked) or maybe a Buff Orphinton. I am a newbie and have both. It was hard for me to tell until they got older.

    No clue on the black one.

    First is a Red sex link or a Road Island Red. The second one might be a barred rock. What color are its legs and what type of comb does it have?

    Hey! I don't need to know the black chicken that is a Plymouth Rock. The brown one is not a Rhose Island Red I know that becausew I have some and it does not look anything like it. She has yellow feet with a sort of stripe of brown on the front side. I think she has a single comb. Any more suggestions would be great! Thanks!

    she's not a buff orpington if she has yellow feet. BO has white feet. How about a type of leghorn, they have yellow legs?

    I agree it's not a BO. Maybe a red sex link.

    I called a feed store and I asked them to order a new Hampshire red for me. They said where they order them from didn't have NHRs. So he said i could get an Aricauna. I said sure so that is what it is supposed to be but it is definitely not. You think they did have NHR? I looked them up online and they don't look much like this chicken?
