    Or is it just a mix?

    I ordered a "Rainbow Layers" package received about 5 of these guys. Just curious if they are a breed or just some sort of mix. I thought this one was a Roo, but then caught her laying an egg.

    Thanks guys!

    What about these ones? The black ones? I thinking an EE mix? The red one ( i have 2 like that) do not look like my RIR hen when next to her, but they might be RIR?
