    Hello All,
    Brand newbie to the board. Looking for help identifying these two.
    Got them 'bout this time last year from a feed store, and proceeded to forget the breed of each of them. He has yellow legs and she has slate gray/black legs.

    Not sure what kind of comb you consider this...nut, fruit or vegetable (walnut, strawberry or pea) got a lot to learn. Didn't look at their soles, but he has four toes if that helps anyone. I haven't actually caught her laying an egg, but I know she is, cause I have 4 hens and I get 4 eggs a day. So I am guessing she is laying the off white/beige egg. My other hens are BO, RIR, and (what do ya call the red hens with the white spots? sex link red or production reds? I have a pooper scooper for a memory.

    Thank you in advance for any and all help.
    My other crew & roo. :)

    I took these at night so they would stand still for me, was using a flash and a flashlight to be able to get the camera to focus. Not sure if this helps, will try to get another shot.
    His tail feathers touch the ground and his wings have a really pretty greenish sheen, I'm pretty sure she does not have any white on her lobe but will double check. She has a sheen too, just more Starling/black bird like.

    Funny, he looked tall and graceful to me until I started taking pictures of him. I would never have believed he was a cornish, but looking at the pics, you may be onto something! Looks like a street fighter or a bar hopper, a real broiler I mean brawler :)
    I never even noticed that he puts his tail down at night and it is right perky during the day. His comb is round and bulbous. (Jimmy Durante-esk) It's amazing what you see when you really start looking, I just have never paid any attention before. Thank you all for your input. You made me "look"!
