I was thinking BO on the first bird too but we all know I stink when it comes to IDing anything that isn't a Silkie.

Looks to me like all the hens are Red-stars/Cinnamon Queens/Red Sex-link hens because of their shape and coloration. The rooster looks to be a Silver-pencilled Rock.

They look very content to chill in their run. : )

Looks like a buff Orpington and red sex links to me the rooster I would go with a rock look to me. I found out I have 2 red sex links and where I have 3 pure white hens or cockerels I am wondering if one is the rooster?

It's almost like common sense would say 3 red sex links and a roo. That would include the Orp. But she looks like an Orp.

The top hen is not the correct shape or color to be a Buff Orpington. They have lighter leg skin, thicker feathering, a smaller comb and no white showing through on the back or streaks of gold on the neck. I keep both breeds, and white it can be hard to tell the difference, the buff birds are lighter and more orange with less of a "red/gold" look to them.
