    Recently got these brown chickens and was just wondering what breed they were. They lay a light brown egg and are a fairly big Bird. In the picture you can see the male and female. Any ideas ?

    It looks like you have to roosters and a hen I'm nor sure what breeds but one of the roosters look like a Cream Legbar so he may be that or a Cream Legbar cross(the same with the rest).

    They look like Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons or some kind of mixed breed.

    They are likely Pioneers, or Dixie Rainbows.

    All great answers! Thanks everyone. They must be some kind of mix cause they have different traits from a number of the breeds listed above

    This.

    They're not Legbars. Way too heavy, brown egg layers, and the wrong color.
    Not Orpingtons either. Yellow legs, and the color isn't lemon cuckoo, there's a lot of color going on there.
