I believe my rooster is a New Hampshire red and I think the girls I know I have are a red star black star and black australorps but the all white girls I am unsure of and the brown girls... I have for the brown girls been suck wondering if they are also New Hampshire reds or something different.. Any ideas??

    The white ones look like white leghorns to me (never had the breed though) the reds might be production reds

    The red birds with white tips and tails are red sex links, aka red stars, gold comets, cinnamon queens, etc. The white floppy combed birds look like Leghorn hens. The red birds with black tails could be hatchery New Hampshires or generic production reds. Any solid black birds are most likely Australorps, while black birds with red throat/chest are likely black sex links. If you have a question on a specific bird, we'll need a better pic of it, a profile shot is best.
