    These chickens are my sister in laws and they are both such sweet birds to my kids. We are hoping (pending HOA) to get chickens this sping. I was thinking orpingtons but I really do love both these hens and would like to know what breed they are. Thank you :)[​IMG]

    Top pic looks like a light brahma, but I could be wrong. Bottom one is a red sex link. They are great layers!

    First one is a Light Brahma.
    Second one is a Red-Sex Link or ISA Brown or Red Star. ( They have many names ).

    Personally I think you should get a flock of Brahma's. They come in so many colours, search them up on BYC and Google and I am sure you will want them[​IMG].
    There is also a thread here on BYC called "Brahmalot" look it up, it's a marvelous story!

    Orpingtons are great as well! They lay more than Brahmas but less variations, unless you cross.
