    We picked up 3 hens at the flea market last weekend. Were told they were laying. Ha Ha. Jokes on me! But that's another question for another section of this forum! This past weekend we again made it to the flea market and the lady we bought them from wasn't there. (I think she knew I'd be back to tell her the Chickens were non-productive!) So my attempt to ask her which breed they are was a dud.

    Our chicken experience has begun with these three birds, so we are learning from scratch. I don't know if knowing their bread will do us any good, but my husband keeps asking me if I've found out what breed they are, and he's driving me nuts! Does anyone know from my pictures what breed they are?
    Anyone? Anyone?

    Thanks!

    i agree there appears to be a roo in the top left, better photos would be great, cant tell much from those. chickens can quit laying when moved, i have had birds that even just moved to another coop (beside their old coop) and they stopped for weeks, so she did not neccessarily lie/mislead you about that.

    those are probably New Hampshire. after they molt a couple of times the feathers on the body are lighter than the rest of the bird. How long have you had them ? they may have been molting and have not started laying yet.

    Give them some time to start to lay again, sometimes the "trauma" of moving hens could cause them to stop laying until they have settled into their new home.
