    Hey everyone! can you please help me to know what breeds of chickens these are? I live in Australia and i bought these a few weeks ago. I think the farmer who gave him to us said the first chicken (the grey one Oreo) has a 50% chance of laying a green egg.

  2. That second one sure looks like a Black Australorp. And you are in Australia too. Homegrown. Not sure of the 1st one.

    Your second chicken is most likely a Black Australorp. :) And if he said the first one has a 50% change of laying a green egg then it could be an Ameriucana. I'm not sure. That is totally a guess ;) But your second one I'd say is a black Australorp :)

    being that you are in Australia, the blue one could be a beardless araucana or cross of, the other is either a black sexlink (since I see brown coming in on her neck) or a mix but not pure australorp.
