    I got all of these from the McMurray Rainbow Egg Layer Special. They are all about 6 months old.

    Here are my guesses:

    1. black sex-link
    2. dark cornish
    3. australorp (maybe not because I can't see what kind of comb)
    4. new hampshire red
    5. maybe another australorp?

    Quote:Agreed, except #3 looks more like a sexlink to me. Check the chest on #3 for some brown feathers - if she has any brown at all she's a black sexlink instead of an australorp.

    Thanks! How do you tell the difference in RIR and NHR?
    I also meant to mention that #3 has slight feathering on her legs and her feet are also slightly webbed...

    I've been looking around and I think I've found out what #3 is-- a Black Langshan. It's hard to tell from the pic but she does have feathers on her legs.

    Also I have a question about another pullet that I have... I think she is a Buff Orpington, but she is really small. Are BO slow to mature?

    I guess it's possible. I didn't see a bantam version on the hatchery webpage that I ordered from, but I just ordered a "mix" so I got all sorts of breeds...

    The hen that I thought was a Buff Orpington isn't. She looks similar, but is smaller and has white ear patches. I finally found out what she is - a Buff Minorca! I was wondering who else was laying little white eggs.
