Hi. I bought these two siblings from an auction. One guy there claimed they were wyandottes but they have feathered legs. Any guesses on breed mix or sex.




Now the second one

A full body picture would help.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Feathered feet narrows down the list. Look a little like my blue cochin but mine are more fluffy looking. Like they said better full body shot would probably get better guesses.  Also age would help.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

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

Very hard to get a decent full body shot as they won't stay still unless they are sitting like the pictures I provided. As for age I'm guessing 4 to 6 weeks.
Any guesses on sex?

They don't appear to have tails so that's part araucana. The feathered feed with a single comb say Cochin or maran. That would make them OE or EE. Take better pictures showing shank color and size comparison. If they arr drastically different in size alone, it's a good indication of gender at this age.
