    I know that the redish brown ones are production reds but I don't know what the black ones are. I bought the reds at TSC and my wife got the blacks from the local 4H. Does anyone have any idea what breed the black ones are?

    Thanks for the the answers. They all have a little white on them but the one pictured has a lot more than the rest. I think they are mixed but does anyone know possibly what mixes would look like this?

    Sorry I just noticed the question about the feathers on the legs. I honestly don't know if the have feathers on the legs or not but I will check when I get home tomorrow. These pics are a few days old and they are much bigger and more feathered than this now. I have been amazed at how fast they have grown.

    The black one in the front looks like an Australorp to me. If it has white on the back of it's head then barred rock.
