    I have 3 girls I'm unsure what breed they are. I think....one is a new hamshire or red sex link...maybe? The next one is a mix something...maybe a black sex link...not sure what a full grown one looks like. The last is either an EE or Ameraucana....how do you tell? I was curious what color eggs I should expect.

    Here they are...what do you think?

    Top one looks like a Rhode Island Red to me.

    But I'm a relative noob, too. [​IMG]

    ETA:
    Middle one? No idea. Black sex-links look like this: http://chickencam.tv/HPIM4037.JPG

    And
    I'd guess Amercauna on the bottom one.

    Number 3 looks like an EE.

    I say #1 is either New Hampshire Red or maybe Red star
    #2, I think I saw something like it on one of the hatchery sites, but can't for the life of me remember what it is
    #3Easter egger
    They look like lovely ladies!



    Ya know, #2 could be a Black sex-link / Blackstar, of my 5 girls, 2 are predominately red and 3 are more black. SSSoooooo, who knows really?!?

    Thanks for the responses! I got them out of a mixed batch of chicks and not sure what breed these 3 are. Pic # 2 has very light ear lobes ...almost whitish? Not as red as my other ones. Could it be a mix of a brown leghorn?

    Thanks austin and everyone! Red Stars have white tips, right? So I'm thinking (Ginger in Pic#1), would have to be a New Hampshire according to website pics I have seen. She looks the most like a New Hampshire. I have RIR that are much darker red than her.

    Pic#2 Well....Brownie is my mystery breed.....could she be a black sex link maybe? Or does she have too much red on her?

    Pic#3 (NightHawk) She is an EE according to most of your replies. She has dark blue/black legs so what color egg will she lay?
