    Well, all but one of my 13 chickens were eaten in Spring by our resident fox which I'm sure had pups, and the winter reaked havoc on my run so the chickens kept getting out....well, I have a new flock, thanks to one of my best egg customer, he bought me a dozen new chicks!! Well, they are now teenagers and I'm wondering if some of you experts can help me determine what they are (especially the black ones) and I'm also curious as to what color eggs I will get from the black hens? here are some pic's -thanks for your time!!! Connie

    My guess is red sexlink and Black Australorp/Black sexlink. All will lay brown eggs, very well.

    I agree. Black Australorps or Black Sexlinks and Red Sexlinks. [​IMG] And they will lay big, yummy, brown eggs.

    That was my guess too. I must be getting the hang of this breed business!
