    The black one looks like a Minorca. But no idea on the other one. Sorry!

    The first one is (or has some heavy mixture) modern game.

    Being that my country is of British Dependencies being overseen by Great Britain....I want to think that they were brought here from England back in the day. Maybe they are mixed with some sort of wild jungle fowl...??? These are the only kind that i see on the island as what we call common fowl. Other than that there is all the other Big Breeds which are kept under lock and key at ppl homes.
