    I got these two at the end of last summer. Both started laying in December. They are both prolific (about 5/week) layers. Goldie (the buff one) lays white eggs, has a pea comb, and a few black tail feathers.
    Sport is mostly white, with some black spots (is this splash?). She lays a nice medium brown egg.

    My guess. They look to be a mix and have some Buff Orpington in them, Goldie looks all Orp but the peacomb and laying white eggs would mean a mix. Yes, I think Sport could be called a splash color.
