    Hi,

    I'm new to chickens, I already had an emergency that you guys helped me with. Thanks so much. She is still alive and doing good.

    I want to attach pictures of my hens since I can't decide what type they are. Can anyone help me figure out how to import an image, I don't understand the directions below (sorry). I have an apple/macintosh.

    I would like to determine their breed. They are too light for Rhode Island Reds, too dark for Orpingtons, Shaver Reds Maybe?

    Thanks.

    They look like New Hampshire reds to me. They're awful pretty!

    Yes, they're New Hampshires, also called New Hampshire Reds.

    Thanks you guys. Yeah, you're right. They do look a lot like the New Hampshire Reds! I love them. These are my first chickens.

    Thanks again!
