    I bought some chickens from the spouse of a man who passed away. They lay a huge egg. Any idea what breed they are?

    They look like partridge rocks to me, but I'll let other's chime in.

    I don't think they are all the same breed. I see two partridge rocks, one production red, and a possible black sl in the background.

    I thought they just meant the ones up front, but yes. The black one looks like a black sexlink.

    Yep, I know there is more than one breed. I was curious as to the ones that look like the Patridge Rocks.

    The one on the right, up front, could be a Partridge Rock. They other two look like cross breeds.

    It is possible that the one on the far left is a Hatchery Golden Laced Wyandotte[​IMG]

    No, I don't think so. It has a straight comb and the colors wrong, even for hatchery quality.
