My sister-in-law is living with us for a while and brought her chickens with her. :) She doesn't know what breed this hen is, but she has two of them. I think only one is laying, she lays light brown medium sized eggs.

Now that she is over a year old I'm asking this again. What breed does she look like. One of the first original 5 we rescued from a lady. She said she thought it was an EE or Cuckoo Marans? Any ideas? I know it's not an EE, and her eggs are 2 tone cream to tan.

Check out the bottom of her feet. If they are yellow, she's a Jersey Giant.
X2 on the above. The bottom of the Jersey Giants' feet are a very obvious yellow as in the picture below.

If they are not yellow (whitish, greyish, pinkish instead as in the pics below), you have a Black Australorp.
