    Im a beginner chicken lady and am uncertain what breed my girls are!? I have looked on the site to determine their breed, but appear they could be one of a couple breeds!? I got them this past spring at TSC... Any ideas?! Thanks everyone!

    Do they lay brown eggs? My guess would be black sex links.

    Yes, they lay brown eggs. Thet were supposedly a bantam....I remember that because they had a higher egg production, but at TSC, I dont think they really know......

    They are Black Sex Links, which are laying machines. You should get loads of large, brown eggs from those two girls. :eek:)

    I have 4 girls and am getting 4 eggs a day on average! Can I expect more as they mature?! They are 6 months old now...

    The red one is a Production Red or hatchery quality RIR and the other bird in the pic is a Silver Laced Wyandotte.
