    I just got new hens and a rooster and Im not sure on their breed. The are bantys but I have no idea if they are a cross or something. Also I relized I never really figured out the breeds of my other chickens. So any help would be greatly appreciated. [​IMG]

    The bantams look like mixes to me. Possibly some Japanese Bantam in them. The hens are Red Sex-links and the black one looks like an Australorp.

    Oh and, the red one's probably are what the other person said...all red chickens too me are RIR..lol! I have Delaware's exclusively, and those white one's look like they have some Del in them, not pure I don't think, but enough to get the barring a little in the neck feathers. Cute birdies [​IMG]

    If I had to guess (other than mixes) for the bantams, I would say the roo is a New Hampshire Red. What kind of comb to the hens have? If they're rose combs then they are Columbian Wyandottes.
