    Red Sex-Links, I'm pretty sure, but I can't tell the black one. [​IMG] Maybe an Australorp or Black Sex-Link?

    agreed, but I would say the Black one is an Australorp.

    You're so welcome! Yeah, I thought the black one was an Australorp, but I didn't say for sure because she was blurry. [​IMG]

    To me the red ones looked like RIRs but I'm not sure.

    They looks to light to be RIRs unless they are badly bred. Another option of breed I forgot to mention they could be was Production red.

    I'm thinking the red birds are production reds, which are generic hatchery birds that are red in color and lay tons of large brown eggs.
    the black and whites are barred Rocks.
    The black bird is likely an Australorp, although if it gets reddish feathering on the throat/neck/chest it's a black sex link.
