    Okay, I've got three hens that are almost ready to lay...what breed are there?

    I have two that look like this so I just took one picture because they are the same. They are lighter than my Rhode Island Reds:

    And this is the only one I have like this, what breed is she?

    The first one looks like a Red Sex Link and the second a Buff Rock. Pretty girls.

    Both are sex-links.

    The first one looks like a red while the second one looks like a golden.

    Wow...so I have two red sex links and one buff rock bantam!

    Do the buff or sex links have light brown eggs? I got a light brown egg today and didn't know who could've laid it...I'll post a picture of it.

    The above egg is the new lighter egg.

    And this is that egg on the left next to one of my RIR eggs on the right.
