LA Layer Chickens??

brendasue(6)November 3, 2009

Can someone send me info on this breed? Is it a breed?

A friend of the family just sold us 12 pullets for 4 each, said they were LA Layers? I've never heard of them & tried looking them up, but havn't found the breed? Good price so we took them.

They're ~ the color of Buff Orphingtons, light red/orange.

1 was white w/ a little bit of orange, so obviously a cross of some sort but the others are uniform in color & looks.

Thanks

Can you give us a picture - I have never heard of them. Maybe with a picture we might be able to make a guess? With the colors you are describing it kinda sounds like a cross of Red Sex Link and Orphington. I tried looking them up also and could not find a thing either.

Thanks Nelda. No pics-I have never been able to figure out how to post pics to this site.

I suspect there is no such breed, the person we bought them from is a long=time family friend, however somewhat of a smoozer (though innocently). I've looked & looked but havn't found anything, add the non-response from the forum & I think there may have been some miscommunication somewhere between the breeder & our friend.

When I see him again I'll try to clarify with him. I think you may be right, though. I just hope they lay eggs as they are supposed to be layers!

Could be Cinnamon Queens...? Sex links come in all kinds of lovely colors. :) What is their body type like, combs/wattles and leg color?

See if any of these look like your girls:

Velvet, remember the chickens that used to put a little basketball in the hoop and was rewarded with a few pieces of corn, honest. Maybe your're not old enough to remember. I saw it on TV...I think it was in black and white,too. I was just a kid.

No, I don't...but I'll bet that sooner or later someone'll put it up on YouTube! I've seen videos of the fortune telling chicken and the 'dancing chicken'.

Hello again,

Sorry it took so long to respond. Dad was admitted into the VA Hosp. for Kidney stones, visiting took an hour trip 1 way . He's home now, for 2 weeks anyways on 2xday IV treatments for infection.

These chickens do kinda look like the Cinnamon Queens, though a bit more orange, smaller combs I think, slim like layer breeds usually are. We started getting eggs-they are green-thinking a cross here. I havn't been able to get a pic with all that has been going on.

Could be he said LA Lakers, I'll have to look that breed up, lol.
