    We just bought a house and these two hens came along with the coop here. They're a little crabby since we brought 23 new chickens to invade their coop, but generally they're nice and they lay large, light brown/almost pinkish eggs.

    I'm going with black sex links.

    I think your right, I didn't see the egg color posted and marans would lay really rich dark chocolate eggs. Possible sex link! The one in front has the flopped over comb like a leghorn but definitely not the body of one!

    The black hen with gold on her chest,is black rock,short for which many called the Black sexlinks.The other hen witha yellowish/gold mane is not a Black sexlink.
    I would just call her a Barnyard mix.This means she is mixed witha few breeds.
