    I bought them at a show in the spring but the guy manning the booth was not the owner and had no idea what they were.

    Not really. I thought they were the same as the hen in my profile which is a BLR Wyandotte but the comb is a lot different. The guy thought they were Plymouth Rock but I couldn't find any online in this colour.

    Well once in a while a rose comb chicken will have a single comb but the neck feathering doesn't match a BLR Wyandotte.

    Do you have a picture of them without a flash?

    I would say probably a Golden Cuckoo Maran or mix breed then.

    They look like mixes. Pretty birds!

    Thanks everyone. The reason that I wanted to know was because I have two roosters, both Amerecauna and some of the hens hatched chicks this summer and I have a few left that I'm trying to sell. A couple people have asked me what they are crossed with and my best guess is these two hens but I didn't know what they were. They lay a light coloured egg. Not white or brown but something in between.
