A Lohmann Brown hen

The Lohmann Brown is an egg-laying breed of chicken. It is of hybrid origin,[1] and selectively bred from New Hampshires and other brown egg laying breeds.[2] They lay at about 18 weeks, laying about 1 egg per day and laying up to 300 brown eggs a year. Eggs are laid daily, normally dawn or dusk. They are a very inquisitive breed of chicken.

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.
