    I acquired 18 hens and I'm unsure what breed they are. I thought red sex linked, black sex linked, possibly Warrens?

    I also have a very colorful rooster, both in looks and personality. I have no clue what he is and everyone asks.

    Any help would be awesome! Thanks![​IMG]

    Crappy pictures, ugh! Well, ignore the third pic, but the second pic shows a bunch of the hens together.

    Pic isn't great, but I'm wondering if your rooster is a Salmon Faverolles. Does he have feathered legs and five toes?

    The hens do look like red sex links. Warrens are a type of red sex link, kind of like a brand name.

    I don't see any black sex links, but if you have black hens with red throats/chests, that's what they probably are.
