    If they are the lohman Browns which are a sex link hybrid. If you get eggs from them you will not wind up with the same birds as the parent stock. You could get some great birds and they will likely be great laying birds but they will not be what you started with. Not sure of the cross used to produce this bird but pretty sure a RIR rooster over something and I frankly do not recall wht it is.
