    I think the first chick is from the BCM and the second chick is from the Blue Orpington.

    I would say that the first one is Black Copper Marans/Wheaton Ameraucana. It definitely has Ameraucana in it!
    The second might be a purebred blue orp. If not, it is probably Black Copper Marans/Blue orp. I'd think it is more likely all orpington, though.

    Does your BCM have feathered legs?
