    I am wondering what kind of chickens these two chickens are. The grey one lays a green egg, and the red one lays a large brown egg. If you know or have a guess please post it. Thanks:)

    Neither are breeds.

    The reddish bird is what is commonly known as a Red Sex Link. They're given many names by the hatcheries who sell them

    The other bird is commonly known as an Easter Egger, because she lays a colorful egg.


    Enjoy your birds.

    Yep, red sex link and Easter egger. Two of my favorite birds for backyards--the sex links lay like crazy, and the EE lay colored eggs.
