    We bought 5 laying hens yesterday & the original owner wasn't 100% sure of the breed. Pretty sure 2 of them are Plymouth / Barred Rocks & the black one we believe to be an Austrolorp. Not sure about the brown ones, may be Rhode Island Reds or possibly Sex Links. Hoping via the picture someone can ID these for us.
