    I rescued a pair of 4 year old hens from their previous owner who was going to eat them the following day because they weren’t laying eggs every day like they used to. We don’t mind that as we currently have a pair of 10 year old chickens who still occasionally lay eggs but not daily anymore. I was just curious what breed you think they are? They each have a single red comb and are buff in color. Looking at other buff colored hens online I thought they looked most like buff orpingtons. This ID is just for fun as they won’t be bred.

    Thanks!

    Lots like one of those Amberlinks though they are rather fluffy. Still Amberlink isn't a breed but just a cross, so you never know.

    Definitely. Buff orp. They will bring you years of pleasure! They are funny, talkative, and will come running every time they see you.
    Good for you for providing them a home.
