Bought these girls from tractor supply and they were not sure of breed. Any ideas?

    Core of the body is a light to medium red with the wings a yellow, white, or buff color.

    Thats probably what they are then. Are they good egg layers. I was hoping for comets like I got from there last year because they lay great and lots of double yokes.
