    I have 5 hens that I can't ID, the eggs are various shades of brown and they reliably lay once a day.
    Their legs are brown, not yellow, and they are slightly smaller than my young RIR hens.



    4 of them are colored alike and look like this:

    The 5th hen is similar to the others but mostly gold

    Any help with ID is much appreciated!

    First two pics look like Black Sexlinks (Rhode Island Red x Barred Rock).

    Last hen looks a lot like my Buff Orpington x Barred Rock hens.

    Some type of sex link probably. The floppy comb could mean leghron ancestry, or there are a lot of crossed used to make sex links.
