    EE (easter egger), lay a blue, green or pinkish egg. But they might be barnyard mix with some EE.

    Left is probably some sort of a black sexlink, but it could have some EE in that mix.

    Right is a silver laced Wyandotte. Neither are going to be exhibition birds, but are probably ideal if you're interested in egg layers. :)

    Yes we want layers, we have 17 chickens total. I purchased the mcmurry hatchery brown egg layer bundle. I was able to identify our other hens.

    I'd agree on a bsl and a slw, both pullets.

    the first one is a black sex-linked pullet i think. the second might be an easter egger

    Oh my, that is not a SLW. To call it one is a crime upon the breed IMO, I might agree that the black and brown one is a sexlink if it came from a hatchery. But considering they both probably came from a local seller they are most likely barnyard mixes.
