I got some chickens a couple of months ago as week old chicks, without knowing what their breed was, and I figured that once they were older it would be easier to determine. Except, now they are completely grown and I STILL have no idea! It would be really amazing if you could help, especially since I just found out they were both roosters the other day and am not able to keep them unfortunately. It would be nice to at least know what they were before we parted, and it would also be good to inform their knew families too Anyways, here they are!
oh and warning: the quality is not the best
So the first (big) little guy is Ella (We were really hoping for a girl XD ). His under feathers are a dark chocolate brown, with varying shades of creamy - white on top. His tail is a sort of metallic green that you can kind of see in the photos. It's hard to tell, but if you look close this guy has enormous amounts of leg feathers - so much so that you can't even see the leg or feet underneath!
Hope the description kind of helps give a clearer picture, but here are the photos:
And here is the second rooster, Derek (at least we picked the name right!). This guy has varying shaded whiteish-grey base feathers, topped with a couple of scattered hazelnut brown ones. he does have a few feet feathers, but not as much as Ella and the feet and parts of the leg are still visible. I only managed to get one dodgy shot before a storm hit, but I will see if I can update with some more if this one doesn't help. It's diffficult to see the face, but the plumage is similar to Ella's

And that's it I guess thanks for reading this, and I look forward to your replies!
