Barred rocks, RIR's and buff orp or maybe golden comet
Production Reds (red hens)
Buff Orpington (if it has white legs) or a Buff Rock (if it has yellow legs)
Barred Rocks (if single combed) or Dominiques (if rosecombed)
Not sure if the other two pics will show up, but the black and white one has gold feathers on her face and chest
She is a cross bred
Barred Rock, Barred Rock Mutt, RIR's or Production Red; golden comet (?)
She (the crossbreed) lays whitish green eggs
I will check the legs on the gold one (honey)
Is the pullet also a RIR? She's in the background or shown here...
Are production reds and RIR the same thing?
If your hen lays green eggs, you can call her an Easter Egger.
The picture of the pullet isn't very clear, but she is a gamefowl. As for which bred? Maybe, I could say with a better picture. But, fewer people know gamefowl breeds, and hatcheries tend to muck up their breeding so much it's hard to determine what is what.
Production Reds and RIR terms can be confusing, as not everyone means the same thing.
Some people consider all birds from a hatchery to be Production Reds, and only true heritage dark RIR's to be Rhode Island Reds.
However, there are hatcheries that even sell Production Reds & Rhode Island Reds. With the difference being a slight change to the bloodline, to produce a better layer their their Rhode Island Red bloodline.
