    Hi :welcome
    Glad you joined the flock. Your chickens are warrens. Some people call them ginger Rangers too. They are a hybrid bred for laying so don't usually go broody. They are what is used in the battery industry because of their good egg laying. They make great gardeners as they will eat anything. They are good eaters because they put all their energy into egg production :frow

    They look like all three breeds mentioned... All commercial birds, great layers and good foragers. Hard to say for sure.
