hey i know i just posted a question about some chicks but this one is about a 2 year old hen. im not sure what breed she is but she is completely brown, no spots just solid brown and lays light/brown eggs.her leggs are a pale yellow and she has a bright red comb. This was one of the hens that was being mounted but i got it sorted out. Thank you for all your help with these chicken breed questions and about my first post.

Could be a buckeye, do you have any pictures? Maybe google buckeye and see if that looks like your hen. Buckeyes have a really small comb which makes them good for cold climates, a dark brown color and the small comb should be a good indicator.

Great! Happy I could help! They're really pretty hens, personally I love the plain looking ones.
