They are really good layers, and they lay medium brown eggs.. if that helps lol. Top photo is from the sale add when I purchased, bottom are of the 4 I bought. They have lightened up some since that photo, but still seem to have those white splotches

    I would also guess Red Sex Link.

    On another note, my neighbor has a bunch of outdoor cats that coexist with my flock when they free range.

    They look like my RIR's when they're molting.
