    There are only two chickens. The rooster with white neck and the all black one. ;)

    Birchen Brahma for the Rooster I guess but likely a mix of things as it looks like it has a crest too.

    I believe the rooster is a cochin/silkie mix. That would account for the cochin body shape with the puffy, rounded tail, and the silkie traits of crest and funky comb. I'd bet he has 5 toes.

    The hen is a cochin mix, or maybe just a poor quality hatchery cochin. Nothing's jumping out at me as the other parent, she doesn't look part silkie like he does.
