    Unfortunatly i cant post pics (im using my phone) but i have had recently acquired two new hens. But i have no idea what breeds they are, the previous owner thinks she may have got them from a hatchery but cant remember...
    So im gonna describe them as best i can, and if you have any guesses of what they might be please let me know.
    They are both approx 8months old.

    1st hen:
    Slightly larger than and Isa Brown.
    Black body feathers with what i would probably call orange/gold penciling around the outer curve of the feather. Neck, throat and breast feather are the rich orange/gold with black dot (laceing?)
    Black legs.
    Single red Comb.
    Big dark eyes.
    She lays medium White eggs.

    2nd hen:
    Slightly larger than the 1st hen.
    Black body feathers.
    The throat is mixed black and white feathers. breast and neck feathers are Black with light penciling around some of feather curves.
    Black legs.
    Red single comb.
    Large dark eyes.
    Also lays medium White eggs.

    So any idea of what breed they might be? Or Would these be hatchery Sex links? Or just Mutts?

    Thanks in advance. Hope someone has some idea. [​IMG]

    Yes! The first hen does look very similar to that. Except she has a slightly larger bright red comb, and her throat feathers have black dots/laced pattern.
    So im guessing they would probably both be sex links, and just different variations hey?

    I love people who can give good descriptions. [​IMG]

    She sounds like a Sex Link, except the white eggs say otherwise. . . She just might be a mutt. Sounds to me like a Brown Leghorn crossed with something else.
