    Hello, I'm just wondering if someone could identify what breeds my chickens are? They're at the age where they just started laying and my kids love them.

    The one on the right is a Black Sex Link. In the back is a Silver Laced Wyandotte. On the left is a production red (often called a Rhode Island Red) the production red differs mostly in color. A true Rhode Island Red would be darker from what I understand. Nice looking birds and I am glad you kiddos enjoy having them.

    Agree--production Red, silver laced Wyandotte, and black Sex Link.

    A very pretty mixed flock [​IMG].

    Thank you everyone for your answers. Good to know what they are ;)
    Being BYC owners can sure raise a few questions. But this site has sure been invaluable for answering those questions.
    Thanks again. Maxamillion
