    Hello. We just picked up out first 4 chickens. I am originally from the UK, now living in Belgium and the breeder we got them from only spoke Dutch so I have no clue what we have! I only know the black one lays green eggs. Can anyone help me work out what breeds my girls are? Thank you so much

    Probably not. At least from the photo, its legs look yellow. Sussex have whitish pink legs.

    The legs of the white one don't really look yellow to me. I think it is likely a Sussex Star, which is a cross between a Light Sussex and a RIR. Compare it with the pic of the Sussex Star below.
