    I purchased 2 young hens today, about 8 months of age. I haven't taken a photo as yet, but was wondering if someone out there MIGHT have an idea as to their breed. They were purchased from the local farmers coop store, and they normally don't sell "exotic" or "fancy" breeds. The hens aren't that large, black and white spotted and have tan/copper flecks on the upper part of their body.
