    Hey folks,
    After last years debacle of 9 out of 12 being roosters, we bought pullets from TSC. Problem is, we dont know what breeds we purchased. The 2 on the back right are the same breed.
    I know 2 are rirs... the others are up to you.?
    They are 8 weeks old.
    Thanks

    The black looks like it may be an Australorp, you have 4 red ones but I can't see the other 2 very well. The whites may be Delawares?

    The two behind the reds look like black sex link pullets.

    Your bottom pic with the brown one, is a brown leghorn, and they are very skittish--just a behavior of leghorns, watch out too--they can be flighty. The white ones look like maybe Delwares. The redish one, red star or RIR.
