    I am wondering if anyone can help me figure out what bred these two hens are.

    I believe that "hen 1" lays white eggs because all of the other breds I have (barred plymouth rocks, rhode island reds, blue coccins, and buff orpinton all lay the brown eggs and of course the araucanas lay the blue/green eggs. I have also seen "hen 2" lay brown eggs.

    Any help is appreciated!

    What kind of comb does the first hen have? The second hen looks mixed.

    I am not up on the chicken terminology, but it looks like a single comb, but it is not spiked.

    The first bird looks like a brown Leghorn, though her legs aren't yellow.... The second bird looks like a mix.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Both of the hens may be mixed, although a brown leghorn is possibly for 1 if she lays a white egg

    I think that your first bird may be a rose combed Light Brown Leghorn, but the second bird is mixed.
