    Maybe Austra whites? A close up picture of the body profile would help.

    Ok then they are not Austra whites. You must have a splash color variety of another breed. Better pictures would help.

    Some type of Leghorn based hybrid like tetra tints, amberlinks, etc. Leghorns are dominant white so you can breed them to pretty much anything and get white offspring with flecks of color. Breeding a leghorn to a brown egg layer will give offspring that lay brown eggs.

    Well some eggs are white and some are brown. I believe one lays white eggs and one lays brown so I probaly have the same type. They are probaly leghorns but one is bred differently although my hens don't have any black my bigger one grew out of it although she may have a speck. Thanks, I'll post better close ups tom.

    Maybe you have a mix of California whites, leghorns, and white rocks?
