    So I have 6 hens. Two I know are leghorns while the other 4 I am rather clueless on. We were given all but the leghorns which is another story in itself. Can someone tell me what breed these girls are?

    What?? An Easter Egger??? Now I wish she really laid eggs. We got her the end of August and hasn't given us any eggs. Too old maybe?

    I don't know. The brown/black silkie (AKA...Princess) was just a small pullet when we got her. The speckled sussex was 2-3 years old or so I was told. The others I was told were laying eggs but I think that the individual I got them from just wanted to get rid of them.
