    The black one looks like a Barred Rock - Georgia could be an Easter egg-er?

    That would be cool if she was a EE. And yes the black one is a barred rock. :)

    Yes, that would be cool. I should have ordered an EE but I didn't want to wait until they were available[​IMG] I got an Egyptian Fayoumis instead which looks like an Eagle.

    The black/white one is either a Barred Plymouth Rock or a Dominique--it depends on the comb type, which I can't see from the photo. A Dominique will have a rose comb, and a Rock will have a single comb.

    As for your brown hen, she reminds me a little of a Red Sex-Link. However, the coloring seems just a bit off to me if that were the case (she almost has lacing and is rather light). She is probably some sort of Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire mix. I don't think she is an Easter Egger, since she lacks many EE traits: greenish legs, muffs/beard, pea comb, etc.

    Both hens are very pretty!

    After looking around I might have to agree with Red Sex Link - abut the lacing is throwing me off.

    It could be a Golden Comet or Golden Buff.
