    So excited we just got our 4 new layers from McMurrays. They are between 4-9 weeks.

    2 reds and 2 blacks. I kinda think they are red sex link and black australorps

    You probably have Black Australorps and Production Reds.

    The red birds are Production Reds (sold by McMurray as Rhode Island Reds). The black birds are most likely Australorps.

    I agree with the other members; definitely Production Reds and Black Australorps. You will get lots of egg from those ladies. :eek:)
