    I know its a pain to have to click on a link to get to the meat of the question but I hope some knowledgeable people will humor me :)

    I bought some of these eggs to incubate awhile back. The chicks are now 8 weeks old. At the time I bought them, the only picture they were running was of the eggs so I never knew the parentage of the chicks. When I went to pick up the eggs, I asked the lady, but she didn't know the breeds because she is actually just selling for a relative who lives in a more rural area, and never sees the actual egg producers. I was excited today to see they have run a new ad and now there is a picture of the parents posted as well. I recognize some of the hens - BR, BO etc. And based on the color of the green eggs, there are some EE's among them too. (However I didn't get any green eggs - they were all light brown and one had a lot of speckles.) I'm curious to know who the parents of my little chicks are. One has a rose comb, the others are all single combed. If you could, please tell me what breed is the rooster and what breeds of hens do you see?

    The rooster in the middle looks like a Rhode Island Red.
