    Hi everyone, I posted awhile back when I first got the hens and too. But I now have more pictures and they have started laying. In the egg picture, all the small ones are from the one with the black collar and the larger egg is from the larger brown chicken. Also the barred rock hen in the photos is the same age as the hens. I was wondering if they were buff brahma mixes. They are very large hens and one has a little bit of a black collar. Thanks for the help! [​IMG]

    I'd bet money on some sort of Orpington mix! :) Lovely ladies!

    Most likely mixes. Possibly New Hampshire Red mixes.

    I think they're hatchery New Hampshires.

    No Brahma blood there. Brahmas have both pea combs and feathered legs. Those two traits are dominant or partially dominant, so you'd see some on the offspring. You have straight combed, clean legged hens.

    x2. Out of every dozen typical hatchery New Hampshires I see, there's always one or two of these weird light colored ones.
