    If your brother bred the birds that laid these eggs, what breeds does he have? What color(s) was the eggs?

    Hi, and welcome!
    Did your brother breed the birds himself from birds he already had - or are you saying he got the eggs from somewhere/someone else and then hatched them?

    They look like mixed breeds to me.

    They all look like mixes to me. Most of them look like they could have some Modern Game in them, but I could be wrong.
     
  7. They remind me of Brown Red Modern Games, but they aren't purebred.

    It has been suggested that they are a cross between Australorp and Isa Brown, but I question that as I understand Isa brown hens are a hybrid (rhode island red x rhode island white)....if they were that wouldn't there be variances in colouring (some redder and maybe abit of white)?
    We live in Australia, so most common breed is Isa Brown and Australorp.

    I agree with Wyandottes7; they look like mixed breeds.
