Hi I just started raising backyard chicken weeks ago. It has been so much fun so I kept adding new hens to my flock. :)

The mistake I made is that I didn't do too much research before buying the chicken and now I'm lost... Could u please help me figure out what breed are these two chickens?

The first one is about a year old and pretty heavy. She is about the size of a 10 months old red sex links. No eggs yet since joining my family but previous owner said she was laying eggs.

The second one is about 5 months old and thin. However, she already started laying middle size white-ish eggs.


Thanks,
Alex

Your first bird is a pretty partridge Rock.

the second bird is a mixed breed. I think she may have some Leghorn or other high production breeding, that's why she seems skinny to you. Those birds are bred to have small bodies, eat a minimum of food and churn out the eggs.
