Can someone tell me what breed these two are ?
They look like red stars/golden comets to me! They're great production birds, and should give you a large brown egg every day.
Cheers ! The bottom one lays really dark brown (small) eggs but the top one lays huge ones lol . I thought the on at the top might be a mixed breed
Also does anyone know of these two would be good to keep in the winter ? Or is it too cold for them
Someone who knows a little more than me might correct me but I think that red stars/golden comets are mixed breeds. Each hatchery calls them something different but it is a combo of breeds crossed to up production.
Red stars, golden comets, golden sex links, or whatever you want to call them are mixed breeds. They're sex linked and produce often, which is why egg selling companies like to use them.
They have a lot more personality than people give them credit for. I think they're very friendly compared to most other breeds.
Red sex link hens, as said they're very dependable layers. They come from stock that handles the cold well as a rule, and mine have always done well in the cold. Temp last night as my house was single digits and it's not looking to get above freezing all weekend
