    can anyone please tell me the breed of this chicken? I got her from a feed story and the man couldn't speak very good English. The only part I understood was red. She lays a double yolk almost everyday. And the eggs are very very large when they have double yolk.[​IMG]

    Looks like a rhode island red or a red sex link. I have 2 that look just like that. They were supposed to be RIR . But in reality they are mixed mitts and sooo what. I don't have chickens for show. Just pets. Sure there are peeps here that will tell you OH NO, DEFINITELY NOT ----------------------, ? Only matters if it is important to you. Some may say she is a production red. Which is true.

    I have a road island red and she looks pretty close to this one but there legs are different colors and they lay different color eggs. The road island lays a much smaller egg this this one. We bought two that day and the other one is lighter and hasn't layed any eggs yet. Hopefully it will lay xl eggs also.

    She's a Production Red. PRs are excellent layers, and it's not real uncommon for them to lay a double yolked egg. :eek:)
