These are two of my hens Buttercup and Nefertiti. Does anyone know what breeds they are? Both hens are currently 6 ½ months.


Top: Buttercup

Nefertiti at 2 months old and again at 6 months old

What color eggs does Buttercup lay?

I would agree the bottom one may be an Australorp. What color are the bottoms of her feet? Pink would be Australorp and yellow would be Jersey Giant. Now that being said my Iowa Blues look a lot like Australorp as well.

Top is an EE and bottom is either Australian if her feet bottoms are pink/white or Jersey Giant if the bottoms are yellow.

I agree. Buttercup is beautiful.

I'm with the majority here. I had a similar colored EE hen, but yours looks to have a blue diluting where mine had black. I like the blue better, I think

Thank you for the information. Buttercup generally lays blueish eggs. The bottom of Nefertiti's feet are a light gray/ more white around the toes.
