    X 2- For comparison's sake, here is a GLW hen - you can see how the comb and color/pattern are totally different:

    They are Black Sex-link hens. Beautiful birds! They should lay you plenty of brown eggs.

    They are definitely Black Sex Link hens, and they should be egg laying machines. I've raised BSLs for years and they have been my best layers, consistently laying more than 300 eggs per hen per year. :eek:)
