    These too look like they have the same banding on their necks like the barred rocks. Maybe they are Orphington crosses? Looks like the barred rock rooster covered every hen in the mixed flock, hehehe...

    Maybe they are buff rock/barred rock crosses?

    I love the look they have! I have a cross BR roo covering a BO hen

    This is what both of them turned out to look like. Maybe yours are a BO roo over a BR hen?

    I didn't see it until I looked again, but in the third pic there are some tail feathers that look exactly like barred rock feathers. I love mixes! You never know what you'll get.
