The lighter brown with the eyeliner and I'm assuming redish chest, is probably a welsummer pullet. Do any have slate colored legs?

Where did you get the chicks?
Private party? Maybe a mixture of diferent breeds..
Nothing wrong with that. .hybrids lay great.. my hybrids generally out perform my purebred flocks.. I'd recommend replacing hybrids every 2 years .hybrids lay alot eggs first 2 years.. but then burn them self out and slow down. .
Comercial egg laying flocks generally are all hybrids. .

Yes, I got them from a private party. Its not really a huge deal to me on whether they are hybrids or not wink.png Totally new to this whole chicken experience and was just curious as to what kind of chickens they are smile.png
Thanks for the info! Much appreciated! smile.png
