    I thought that the one on the right was an EE but the legs aren't colored. One on the left is a Delaware roo.

    I think (the brownish red one) is a hen but I haven't a clue now as to the breed... Ideas?

    I'm not sure about the reddish one. Are you sure that's a Delaware? The comb appears to be a pea comb, but perhaps it's just the lighting or the angle of the pic.

    The one on the right looks like it could be a brown leghorn, or a partridge rock. what color are the legs?

    Hmm, yeah, I'm with speckledhen on the left-side bird. Looks like a pea comb, but I can't tell for sure because of the distance of the shot. If it is a pea comb, the bird is likely a Delaware mix. I can't tell the age, but here's a pic of a 4-week old Del cockerel (George) for comparison:

    So if the other is not a Delaware roo, what would it be?... no feathers on the legs of either.

    They are both 10 weeks old.

    Then I think it is a partridge rock. Pretty birds.
