Hen ID Please - What the Cluck?!

Recommended Posts

Would anyone be able to give me the fancy name for this type of hen/chicken?  Thanks, in anticipation.

Probably not easy - they are young, and chosen breed seems to depend on many things. Maybe you should try a local hen party :)

Could be young Buff Orpington.

My guess would be young Rhode Island Reds.

I was looking at the almost white tail tip.  I know Warrens have that, but I don't know that the others don't!
