    Well I am so new to all of this that I really don't know that I can help at all, but it does look like a pair of cochins, just like I think I have a pair of barred rocks. One has red comb and is getting red where the wattles would form, and the other is still the color that they were and not much comb growth. Same with my buff orp pair. Good luck hope someone can give you a definitive answer.

    Yes you have one of each And they are nice Cochins dont need much effort at all to make them spoiled To much and they think they are human [​IMG] Cochins are some of the best there is for alot of reasons and seems more people would have some

    THANK YOU ALL~! I'm smiling from ear to ear with that news? They also like to hang out together all day long [​IMG] They are both so very sweet! The only time they peck at you is if there happens to be a mosquito on your leg to eat [​IMG]
