    Can you help me find out the breed of the brown chicken and the white one? I think the brown is a New Hampshire Red and the white one with the rose comb either a Leghorn or RIW.

    Also, can any tell what kind of breed could have laid these eggs?

    I have a Silkie, Australorps Dominique and Barred rock. Plus the two above. I haven't seen a Silkie egg, but I was hoping it was.

    I'm going to say the eggs are not from your
    Australorps,Dominique or Barred rock.The eggs could be from your white hen,or from the other hen pictured or the silkie.
    The white hen is bigger in weight than my leghorns.
    No help on the other hen.
    She is very beautiful.

    Thanks. I had two today, so I thought it was my Australorps, but now that you confirmed that, I am hoping it is a Silkie because I have a white male and black female and I want to breed them.

    I love my what I call now a New Hampshire red, but I am not sure. She used to belong to a certain place that I cannot name, that closed down and was owned by a famous country singer. [​IMG]

    White one looks like a White Rock and the eggs could very well be from either your Barred Rock, or a Silkie. My barred rock is bred with a white leghorn and sometimes that is the color and shape of their eggs. [​IMG]

    Ok, if my Barred Rock is only 5 months old, then could I assume that those are from my Silkie? Oooh if I can confirm that those are Silkie eggs they are destined for the incubator!

    The white one looks like a white wyandotte to me, since white leghorns do not come with rosecombs and neither do white rocks.
    The brownish one looks like an easter egger to me or maybe a very poorly coloured silver kraienkoppe, new hamps would be a lot redder and the neck feathers would be gold and black(kinda like a brown leghorn) and not silver and black.

    Not a New Hampshire red.... she'd have a more uniform and redder color. She is pretty though!!!

    I thought Gerties, the white one might be a Rock or Wyandotte. I will have to go with Wyandotte as it seems acceptable after looking at their breed information.

    So, now my unknown friend. I am going to see what more everyone has to add, but I will accept she isn't a NHR, as I saw them and she is a bit off. Perhaps someone has a chicken like her out there?

    Here is a bit of a body shot to help

    the white i agree think it's a wyndotte. the brown one is definately not a NHR but it very pretty!! love the unique pattern but couldn't tell u what she is.

    going by breeds u have listed in ur siggy i'd say the eggs r silkie. they look tinted like my silkie eggs and about right size. hard to tell w/ pic blown up but if they r small like med sized eggs than definately silkie as a silkie is a bantam which lays small eggs usually medium sized sometimes smaller if new layers. Australorps-lrg white egg layers if i remember right, Dominique- if i remember right lrg brown and Barred rock-lrg brown egg layers
    hope that helps,
    silkie

    Yeah, they are small. Not as large as my Delaware eggs in the bator. I think I remember someone in my house commenting when we cracked some eggs for breakfast the other week about a spot in them. I am going to give them a try in the incubator and see what happens.
