A Lohmann Brown hen

The Lohmann Brown is a variety of chicken, raised specifically for egg-laying productivity. It is of crossbreed origin,[1] selectively bred from New Hampshires and other brown-egg-laying breeds.[2] They lay at about 18 weeks, producing up to 300 eggs per year. Eggs are laid nearly daily, normally at dawn or dusk.

Most Lohmann Browns have a caramel/brown shade of feathers, with white feathers in a pattern round their necks, and white feathers at the tips of their tail feathers.
