    I got these hens from a hatchery and got them as brown egg layers. so thats all i know about them. The two white ones seem to be the same breed. And I'm pretty sure the skinny black and white one is laying white eggs. here they are.[​IMG]
    Goldie Flocks in front. Fluffy Butt is the white one. and the striped one is Milkshake.

    Ugly Betty ^^^^^^ (she has yellow ear lobes... weird)

    that is milkshake again. (she has a rose comb)

    Thanks for any help!

    Goldie Flocks could be a New Hampshire Red...hard to tell though with just one picture.
    Agree with brandonbkelly on Fluffy Butt and Milkshake. Dominikers (Dominiques) were what I originally started out with, and they remain my favorite breed. :)
    No idea on Ugly Betty there....pretty girl though. :)

    Goldie maybe also a Red Sex Link .... or Red Comet? I know they go by many different names depending on the hatchery.

    Check the available breeds from the hatchery you got them from. Most hatcheries have pics of their available chickens and you may find good reference pics there now that your hens have matured.
