There are two chickens, same color. same look. Do not have tails. They are rumpless. Bottoms of feet are White/grey in color. Legs are Bright Yellow. They are about 4-5 months of age he thinks. Act like hens. No Crowing. Not aggressive. Smallish in size.

Easter Egger.  And that's a pea comb, not a rose comb.

Breeding Welsummers and Barnevelders.

 

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

I have zero chicken willpower.

he might have been told Americana but they arent a recognized color so that would make them ee's and they might be cockerels

Yep, an EE.

Orpingtons are the best breed. Fluffy butts, huge eyes and such a friendly temperament.....what more could you want?

I've seen Humane Societies misidentify dog breeds (purebred marked as mixes, mixes as pure and incorrect breeds for purebreds), ages (sent home folks with a dog identified as an 10-12 week old puppy that had 8 + month old dentition--try to explain to the owner how their German Shepherd pup is really a corgi cross and is gong to stay that size), and even male cats and a guinea pig misidentified as females. Can't imagine they would trust them with accuracy of chicken breeds...
