    Lost most of my girls to the neighborhood hawk this year. When I got down to one, I went to a local farmer to get some more hens so my one RIR wouldn't get lonely. He had just received over a hundred hens and didn't know much about them. Most of them...and the ones that I chose where mostly tan and white feathers with very large combs that flopped over on one side. I've taken a quick look at breeds and I don't see any similar. Since they are molting I'm not sure a picture would help. Can anyone give me suggestions as to what breed this may be?

    Maybe red sex links of some sort? Post a pic, we're used to molting birds.
