    I'm not sure about two of my girls, can you help me? Both are full grown, and laying. I thought that one was a Wyandotte and the other either a Barred Rock(she's really too skinny though) or a Dominique.
    Any ideas or help would really be appreciated![​IMG]

    This is the possible BR:

    Looks like a hatchery BR hen and a Black Sexlink hen to me. She's not a Dom because they have rose combs.

    The first one looks like a Barred Rock to me..Dominiques don't have a straight comb. The other looks like a Black Star..production hybrid.

    Thanks for the quick replies! How about these 2?

    I think that Greedy here is a RIR, but not sure.

    And Blondie here we were told by the former owner was a Golden Comet.

    Thanks for the compliments, Robin, hubby and I are pretty proud of our little flock!

    Spyder, is the Black Star an egg or a meat production hybrid? To look at her, she's so big she could go either way![​IMG]

    I'm no expert but the one you said was a Rhode Island Red looks like my Golden Comets more than my RIR.
    The one that you said was the GC doesn't look like mine at all.....

    What does everyone else think?

    The first one is a Golden Comet..production Hybrid.
    The second one is a Buff Orpington.

    Does the barred one lay brown eggs? There are barred Leghorns (you mentioned her body type), but they are not that common. And a BL would lay a white egg. If she lays a brown egg, she's just a hatchery BR with bad body type.

    Quote:She lays a very light tan, smallish egg. When first layed, the egg has very tiny speckles all over that disappear after a couple of hours.
    She's our lead hen, so at least her body type doesn't affect that![​IMG]
