    Any ideas what these are, referring to the speckled with white head and the bantem red guy with feathers on its feet. I know these are not good gender pics but feel free to guess that as well.

    Thanks!

    The red one could be a red Cochin. Not sure on the first guy. Looks like he has a muff?

    Both are cockerels.

    I think the other is a salmon faverolle....? But I could be wrong.

    Salmon favorelle sounds right. I bet that is what they are.

    Yeah, the other could be a Faverolles (always has an "s" on the end, even for just 1 bird). Looks like he's got feathered legs as well. Does he have 5 toes?

    These are not purebred birds. The red one looks like a Faverolle/RIR cross (faverolles have MUCH lighter coloring, and a big muff and beard.). The darker one is hard to tell from the pics. I suspect both are roos.

    Both are cockerels. The red one is a cochin or cochin cross. The other one is hard to tell without a better picture. If he is a faverolles, he will have 5 toes and feathered shanks.

    OP said feathered shanks I believe. Looks like a Faverolle to me.

    The other one looks either like a poor quality Cochin or a Cochin cross.
