    I bought two brown, black and reddish-tan hens with black spots on their chests about five years ago. Does anyone have ideas of what type of chickens they are? If you need a pic I can post one... thx!

    Brown leghorns and welsummers are the same body color. The difference is in the body shape, comb size, earlobe color and egg color and most times temperment.
