    Your first one looks like a brown leghorn (I love them - such pretty feather patterns). Not sure on your second one. Someone else is bound to know.

    First is a brown Leghorn pullet.

    Second...huh. She's a she, and the pattern looks like a partridge Rock, but the color is very light. Partridge Rocks are usually a darker, richer red, this bird has an orange cast. maybe just a hatchery variation, or maybe a mix.

    After much research (and some help from you all), we have determined Pumpkin is a Brown Leghorn and Cocoa is a Dark Brown Leghorn. Thanks for the Help :)

    The second bird is not a Leghorn. The earlobes are the wrong color. Most likely a Partridge Rock, like the others have said.
