    I need help figuring out which is which. I want to avoid getting rid of my dark brown layers and sell some light bronwn layers.

    First there are two that I think are production a black star maybe and a production red?

    Then there is this girl. Also production?

    And this girl is lighter with white speckles in her tail, under her wings, and her wing tips before I clipped her. Sorry bad pic and she is wet from the mister. She is a much lighter brown but I suspect she is laying a darker egg.

    And I know this one lays a HUGE brown egg and is prone to twins but no idea what she is.

    THANKS in advance!

    All the reds look like PR to me, and I agree with the BS. I have no idea what that last chicken is, but she is GAWGEOUS!!!!!

    I really want to know what the one with the wrong head attached is! It looks like a blue wyandotte had some other chickens head surgically attached [​IMG] My husband loves her giant double yolked eggs though. He thinks it still counts as one egg at breakfast.

    I would love to know what that last one is. What a strange combo. What is a production red? I would say they look like Rhode Island Reds. Is that the same thing?
