    These chickens are about 3 1/2 months old and came in a batch of "rainbow layers". Out of 27 hens I know that 20 of them will lay white eggs so I am hoping that these unidentified girls may actually lay some sort of colored eggs. Any ideas as to the breeds here? (This is my first post so bear with me if it doesn't work)

    I think the white one is a columbian rock- NICE! Brown egg layer!

    Looks like you have a black sex-link (brown eggs) in the first pic.
