I agree with Donrea, from Murray McMurray, he appears to be a Pioneer or Ranger. Either way, he is gorgeous!

Beilfelder 's look very similar as well.

 

In regards to you hen you posted, I would say splash EE, leg colour is EE but she has a straight comb so I am a bit puzzled?  Very pretty what ever she is!! :)

First question is, what hatchery? Cuckoo Orpingtons aren't a readily available as hatchery birds. From what I can see, he's got yellow skin, so that rules out Orpington. I'm leaning toward one of the hybrid meat birds like a Pioneer or Rainbow, but knowing the hatchery will narrow things down.

 

Your black hens with red ticking at the throat/breast are black sex links.

Agreed

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

MMM rules out all the rarer breeds that have been suggested. I'm sticking with Pioneer.

 

The splash bird looks like an Andalusian, I'm pretty sure I see white earlobes.

McMurray needs some new pictures up for those Pioneers, lol theirs look, well, like Hatchery hens ha-ha... Maybe they should put the OPs pic up there for better advertisement wink.png
Based on that pic, I wouldn't want any, but from the OPs rooster pic, I want some lol big_smile.png
