    This is my first time having chickens since I was a kid.

    I found my younger one (Bubbi) on the street (literally, while I was on a run) and the older hen (Bertha) I got off of a local craigslist ad. She is said to be about 2 years old, and that is all the previous owners knew about her. There is quite a bit of difference in size, but I believe Bubbi is still fairly young (though I can't be sure based on the fact I just found her on her own).

    I originally thought Bubbi was a Rhode Island Red, but the more time goes by, the more I think she could be something else due to darker markings coming in.

    I don't have much experience with determining breeds especially when they are the red colored chickens, there are a lot of similarities between multiple breeds and I am just not that good!

    Here are some photos. The markings coming in on Bubbi seem to match what Bertha already has, so they could be the same breed?

    Thanks in advance for any/all feedback.

    Bubbi is a mix breed hen ( maybe a New Hampshire Red cross) and Bertha is an Easter Egger. [​IMG]

    Bubbi is some sort of mix, probably with some New Hampshire Red in her. Bertha is a pretty little Easter Egger.
