    I got them as chicks and raised them, they are 2 years old. They have a slight brown rim to some of their feathers, i hope you can see it(the last photo shows it best)?
    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

    I bought them from a guy in Reading who hatched them in an incubator. They're a mix of something, but not sure what?

    You can google red sex link, they're a hybrid chicken, but I'm thinking it might not make sense that they were a red sex link cross, because red sex links have all sorts of weird variation in their genetics, and these hens look like they're a consistent cross (though we only have two to look at). I think that's how it works.

    If you look at the chicken calculator, a white patterned gold duckwing male crossed with a white patterned red wheaten female produces females that look similar to yours. I have NO idea what breeds might hold those colors...

    I think they might be some sort of orpington cross.
