Ok, I had to get onto the computer, but I fixed the photo. Apparently photos from my phone will not upload here. (Sorry for any confusion and/or annoyance!)

We just got these hens from someone who didn't know anything about chickens. Can anyone identify the breed (s)? The big ones lay medium brown eggs (not super dark). The smaller brown-ish hens lay white eggs.

I consulted Henderson's chart, but didn't decide, conclusively, what breeds we have.

Does anyone know of any other chart or identification tool that might be helpful? If no one can ID, I will try hatchery catalogs.

Warmest regards! :)

Um, I had posted that the image, which I selected, was not properly uploading from my phone. I then changed the text of the post to say that I fixed the image by logging on and uploading from the computer. Rude much?

Was doing some reading on Barred Rocks vs. Cuckoo Marans, and I have read that the BR have yellow legs where as the CM have pink legs. So this, if it is indeed true, would mean that we have CM, although I have not seen any particularly dark brown eggs as of yet.

Just wanted to pass along for identification purposes!
