    she lays light brown same as the ex battery hens i have, but they are alot larger and 90% are double yokers, i think the pair are about 1 1/2 to 2 year old now or there abouts

    She looks like a mix to me. The pic doesn't show her legs the best, but they look dark. Sussex and Marans both have light legs. I could see some Orp influence in her......not sure what else. They may have been someone's project birds or just pretty mixes.
