    I've had these guys for several years and hatched out several generations of chicks but never knew what breed they are. Does anyone have any idea? They all look like the ones pictured. I have about a dozen of the girls they lay well and are great mothers.

    was thinking buff sussex or new hampshire. Like I said I've raised them for years and they were just always chickens. This year we went and got a few breeds to ad to the flock. Now working out how to keep them from mixing with each other.

    They look nothing like my new hampshire Eleanor - RIP She was a lot bigger and chunkier

    She is the one in the middle black tail and feathers round the neck on red. You can see how different she is to yours? So I don;t think yours is a new Hampshire sorry not sure what yours is? [​IMG]

    New Hampshires really have been thrown far from the standard these days. . . . [​IMG]

    But, I guess it's a new hampshire.
