    I inherited chickens and am not sure what I got. I think this might be Welsummer?

    Thanks. The Red lays a really pretty large dark brown, somewhat speckled egg. The white hen isn't a very good layer but when she does lay, she produces a large off white/cream colored egg. I have no idea how old she is though. That may be a factor to her frequency.

    Pics of the eggs? If the red lays as you describe, then Welsummer is a good guess.

    First bird is a Welsummer, second looks like a white Rock. A Leghorn would have a lighter body, more upright tail, larger comb and white earlobes. A Leghorn would also lay a pure white egg.
