The black bird in the second picture looks like a Black Sex Link. I have some that have more brown to them, almost like half the bird Is brown. Same short comb and waddle.

She's supposed to be a rare breed. I was hoping she was a black copper maran:)

Maybe the mystery one is a Phoenix? The other is a black sex link pullet.

Murray McMurray hatchery includes Black Sex Links in their Brown Egg Layer Assortment so that's probably what the second pic is and I agree that the first pic is probably a phoenix.
