    Hate to say it, but they are not Cochins. One is a Mille Fleur D'Uccle and the other one is a cross of some kind--notice the very white earlobes. The D'uccle is a rooster and the other one seems like a rooster, but not positive on that.

    I agree with Cyn... And sorry, they look like two roos.

    oh wow, they lied at the auction.
    no surprise there.

    any other input is appreciated, however.

    The one with the big white earlobes probably has some Silkie in him, due to the crest, but what else is in it is a mystery. Has Buff Brahma-like coloring, but nothing else. Those huge white lobes remind me of White faced Black Spanish. I'd say that one is a mix of two crossbreeds.

    the left looks similar to my silkie cross, crest feathers and looks like an extra toe on the left foot?
