Any ideas of what breeding has gone into these two?

    While most of my chickens are African "village" chickens --no-maintenance birds which entirely fend for themselves-- I needed a new rooster and came across this fellow. He is an "improved" race chicken, but no one really identifies breeds here. Any ideas? I also at the same time bought this hen. Any ideas of what breeding she might be?

    I'm not sure on the breeds that went into the rooster, but the hen looks like a Black Copper Marans.

    Hen could be a Black Copper Marans or BCM mix; the rooster just looks like a random mix, with no obvious breeds standing out.

    Thanks for your help! I looked up black copper marans and I do see a resemblance in the hen. I bought her because I liked her looks. Breeds don't really matter here. I was curious since any on this site speak about various breeds.
