    They could bee poorly marked anconas (backs are too solid), poorly marked magpies (no cap on head) or crosses (many pekin crosses will look spotted like that and can easily be confused with anconas or magpies)

    Do you know what hatchery or breeder they may have come from? That will help narrow down the chances of them being one or the other

    It could be a poorly marked Ancona, or poorly marked Magpie. I'm thinking more towards poorly marked Magpie, because of how the black marks on the head are staying primarily were the black cap would be and because of how the black covers on the back.
