So they should be about 22-24 weeks old, no eggs yet. Are any of these Roo's? and what is the yellow'ish ones breed?? (Lots of pics) Also I live in CA, times are changing so im not sure if ill get eggs this season. These pictures are a couple days old.

Little history: These are my first birds. I have made numerous mistakes from switching them to a laying pellet at 16 weeks to letting them have full range to their coop, I was feeding them scratch for a while as a treat before I read it was a wintertime only thing. They have not recieved scratch in about a month or 2 now. I give them vegetable scraps and they love their black oil sunflower seeds.. I have a little mini pin they sometiems chase around, probably because he steals their plates of yogurt.

. im not sure if they are stressed, it would appear to me they have quite the life.. They freerange from sunrise to sunset 3 days a week and the other 4 they are allowed out into their run 8-5 and from about 5-8pm they freerange.. Do they look healthy? Hopefully not any Roos? Any ideas/help is apprecialted.. Thanks again

In your last pic they are dust bathing/sunbathing. A chicken's favorite activity next to eating. They seem to go into a trance when they are really really enjoying it.

I dont know what it is but looks a lot like my Sniper and Viper. (mine lay huge almost yellowish eggs) And one of them is broody right now at 6.5 month old.

The hen you question looks like my welsumer hens. They lay a dark "chocolate" brown egg. The first time mine were sun bathing I got so upset, I thought something was wrong with them!

GopherBoy - looks like your Viper's an EE (green legs) - the unidentified one has yellow legs; looks like a Welsummer to me!

Welsummers lay reddish brown (terra cotta, they are described as) eggs:
