    I got these 2 golden hens at a sale a few weeks ago so I dont have much information on their history. No eggs yet so Im not sure what color eggs they will lay. What breed do yall think they most likely are?

    This is just a knee-jerk reaction, so I could be wrong, but I want to say New Hampshires.

    Hmm, you know what? I missed those white speckles on the hen to the right when I first looked. So, I'd like to amend my statement and say NH or RSL.

    They're production reds. Good layers of medium brown to light brown eggs.

    If I am right (and I am very sure that I am), those are Buff Orpington Roosters. Sorry.
