    Hi everyone!

    I recently picked up ten hens and one rooster! Can anyone tell me what breed they are? Please excuse the messy coop, it's overdue for a cleaning!

    My guess is Colombian rocks, older hens with washed out legs that were yellow to start with. The other consideration is light Sussex, they have white legs.

    I think they may be light sussex, due to having white legs

    Either Columbian Plymouth Rocks or Light Sussex; I'm leaning towards Sussex because they are more common.
