    I was told 2 were EE's & 3 were "maybe" black austrolorps... But IDK, Please let me know what ya'll think... They are all laying hens (thank goodness!!) The black ones feathers are black w/ a little bit of green & the other 2 lighter ones have the fluffy beard thingy that I have seen on EE's...

    Here are 2 of the black ones & one of the EE's...

    Looks like what you were told is correct. I see 2 EEs and 3 Black Australorps.

    Quote:Awesome. My friends mom wasn't sure so I wanted some expert advice. I inherited these beautiful girls from my best friends mom who can't physically care for them anymore today & they are great! Both my boys were holding them walking around the yard, letting them eat feed right out of their hands & they even came & sat in my lap out in our run!
