    I can not figure this breed out even though I have googled the crap out of it if you can help thanks. She came with 2 chicks so I am thinking they are a breeding pair. but could be totally wrong.

    Doesn't look like any breed I've ever seen, it's probably a mix of some kind

    The rooster looks like an Ancona. The hen I don't know either, probably a mix.

    The rooster could be a Swedish Flower. The hen is definitely a mixed breed.

    Game mixes. The white spots is common called spangled in game circles.

    The hen has barring(same as on barred rocks) which is often called "Dom" or "Domeicker". I suspect you have either different strains of games or they were from a flock where they mixed up freely.
