    Hello all. Could you help me in identifying this rooster and his mate. I got them two yrs ago from the TSC store. Two roosters and two hens and for the life of me I can't remember what they are, lol. They do produce the largest brown eggs, got a 3 1/2oz double yoker the other day. Sorry I don't have a good pic of the female but she does look like the Australorps on this site. Thanks alot for your help.

    Ok I have a little better pic of one of the females with the mottleling on her breast. Is there anyone who might know what breed they are?

    Not Australorps, might be a mix.

    Ok everyone thanksfor all your help. Still wish I'd remember what they were when I bought them. It's odd because I got two roosters and two females and they are identical in colors and patterns. Bought at TSC. Appreciate all your help, maybe I'll figure it out someday.
