    These are some shelter hens I got last December. I'm curious about the 2 red ones. We were told they were Rhode Island Reds, but I'm sure they are not. They are really both the same color, but in the picture the one has just been rolling in the dirt. The one on the left is Debra, and the one on the right is Sheila. The 3rd triplet, Holly, is trying to hatch some eggs, so could not make it for playtime. [​IMG]one on the [​IMG]

    Not orpingtons. I'm not familiar with ISA browns. Pretty girls and a broody as a bonus.

    I know this is an older thread, but I just have to let you know that those chickens look exactly like my Isa Browns. I have heard them called comets before too but for sure they are Isa Browns.
