    I received two hens and a coop from a friend that moved away around Aug. 8, 2014. These girl had not started laying yet. Is was any day until they did. Finally they started around Aug. 22. I have been getting two eggs ever since then with maybe a 2-3 day pause when I moved the coop to a bigger spot. I believe they are happy birds. I let them out of the run when I can keep an eye on them. The girls name are Peep and Flap. Peep looks to be a leghorn that lays brown eggs. Flap is a RIR also lays brown eggs. I never know about chickens so with some research on the internet and mostly on Backyardchicken.com I have learn to take care of my girls in the city. I will attach pictures so all can see the beautiful hens that I have. Well they make me happy and my kids too.[​IMG]

    Aww! Your two girls are so cute!! Love their names! Yes Peep is a leghorn for sure. Flap looks like a rhode island red.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    If Peep looks like a Leghorn and lays brown eggs, then she's probably a White Plymouth Rock (which look like chunkier versions of Leghorns and lay brown eggs). Flap does look like a hatchery quality Rhode Island Red, often called a Production Red.

    Good luck with them!
