    Hermione is a red sex-link also called Red Star, Maude looks like an Easter Egger, I'm surprised she lays a brown egg, usually ranges from pink to green or blue.

    The red sex link is fairly obvious. That is a hybrid or mix that is a popular egg layer. The copper topped bird is a little harder, for me. Flat comb and are those yellow legs I see?

    Yellow legs, yes. The picture is a bit misleading - it's not a flat comb. Pea or rose?? (I'm not sure of the difference) She doesn't look much like the EEs from the same order (got all the chicks in one order from mypetchickens.com) and she definitely lays a brown egg.

    As for the other one, I have two other red stars that are much darker than her that I got from the same order, too. The eggs from the other red stars are almost identical - hers are much lighter brown.

    Gold laced wyandotte and red sex link. The fluffy face in the background is of course an EE.
