    The guy I got them from said they lay brown eggs and i think he said the darker one is a NHR hen? I havent gotten any eggs yet!

    Thanks! Now i have about four different types of chickens and I dont know what they are! All of the hens I bought as chicks are supposed to be nhrs. When we were at the guys house he asked me which type i wanted and my dad said immediately brown egg layers. I was soo mad cause i already have brown egg layers! I wanted to get some of the aracaunas but my dad had to open his mouth. So now I have 8 brown egglayers.
