    The brown one, looks like a production red.

    the black one looks like native Thai black chicken. where everything including meat bones and internal organs are black. (pic below).

    I got them from my school... We were studying animal behaviour in science with day old chicks. They were so adorable I had to keep them[​IMG]
    The professor said that they were "top egg laying"? Hmmm

    Some of the commercial hatcheries also produce what is sometimes called a Commercial Black or Special Black hybrids, as well as the red and white hybrids.

    If these were said to be good layers, it is possible, quite possible, the eggs came from a commercial source. Time tells all things.
    Sure, I bet you'd like to keep them.

    I vote for red and black sex links. Both females.

    I do as well. "Top Egg Layers" in the USA mean SL hybrids.

    I have both breeds in my coop. The black one is a Black Australorp and the red one is a Red Star. Great birds and co-habitate well together. My Red Star's are the more adventurous off the two breeds. They seemed to be the first to do everything. The Australorps tend to be more friendly and more receptive to petting.
