    I just received my flock of four hens this afternoon from my local co-op. I'm having trouble finding information on the net about them, so I'd like to ask you to confirm or not their ID's.

    These are my 2 DeckalB's. I've been told by someone here that they are likely a production run hybrid. That doesn't really help me know what they might be. The really black one has a lot of irridescence to her feathers.

    This is a Warren. Why can't I find information on this kind of chicken? I thought Warren's were fairly common?

    This is obviously a Leghorn. Is this really a female?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    2 black sexlinks, 1 red sexlink and a leghorn. All hens, the all black one and the leghorn look a bit pale, but that can be from the traveling stress.

    Depending on where you get the hens the names of the sexlinks can vary, many use the same crosses but slap their own name on them.

    I must admit I have never heard of a Warren before, she looks just like my Isabrowns(a type of red sexlink).
