    EE are the same as mutts/dogs, muggy/cat, EE/chicken they are just a mix of chickens but my guess is a barnevelder mixed with a pea comb breed, barnevelder is a single comb breed if i remember right.

    The hen looks like a Dark Cornish. Not the greatest layers, but they forage well and make good mommas.

    The chicks look like black sex links.
