    I took in these 3 hens today; the owner had to move and pretty much abandoned them. I have no idea what breed or mix they might be but they are rather flighty, aren't real big and they lay medium size white eggs. Can anyone help me out with their breed ID? I'd sure appreciate it. They are pretty girls, and yes, the one in the middle is broody. They were all clumped together in the photo because they were pretty stirred up with their move. ( yes - those greenish things under her are plastic eggs; I may put her to work for me in the next couple days )

    Thanks for your help!

    They were not so much angry as they were hot - they are panting. It was right around 100 yesterday and humid. All my birds were panting all afternoon. Me too!

    The middle hen looks like a RHode Island Red. The 3rd hen, maybe a SexLink. The first, I dunno....game hen?
