    We have 73 chickens and after all this time would like to know the breed.
    Can someone tell us what breed of chicken this is?
    the rooster is one you see on a cornflakes box and hens have a red/gold body with golden neck/head.

    I tried to upload several photos, however the system wouldn't allow it!

    The chickens you are describing sounds like Welsummers. That is what the Kelloggs Rooster is taken from. I have them and they lay dark brown eggs.

    X3. The rooster on the Kellogs' Corn Flakes box was a Welsummer.

    I would post pics but this system won't allow me to. But they are definitely Welsummers!

    Thanks all!
