    Anyone know what type of chickens these are? I know the rooster is a black sex link. Not sure about the breed of the 2 different hens. Thanks!

    The rooster in the back "facing down feeding" of the picture is a Red Sexlink. The rooster in the front "head only" is a Black Sexlink. And the one in the middle "facing away" looks to be a Black Sexlink cockerel.

    I was thinking thinking the brown and white one could be an amber star. And not sure on the black and white one. I thought black sex link hens are black with some brown but I could be wrong!!

    I had about 50 roosters that looked just like the white/red one eating, they were a cross between a red rooster and a white hen. The one in the middle just looks crossed between 2 or 3 breeds. The closest rooster looks like a barred rock, but could be a black sex-link male??

    The other two aren't hens. They are a Black Sexlink cockerel and a Red Sexlink rooster.
