    Where did you get them? Do you have any idea as to which breeds might be the parents? Just a little help might improve the quality of the guesses a lot.

    Quote:There are BR in the mix and Black Australorps, Leghorns, EEs, Jersey Giants too. I'm not sure of what else though.

    I don't know. The only one I have of your possible breeds is the BA and they and their offspring have legs a lot blacker than the yellow legs in your photo. The body shape on the grey one does not look like a BA to me, especially the head and neck. The body shape on the white one does not look like any of mine either. The feather color and pattern on the white one looks a bit like maybe the BR cross with something with a Columbian gene, maybe one of the EE's? Or maybe a Delaware hen is in the ancestry. Or maybe they are second or third generation crosses of several different breeds. I just don't see anything that tells me anything specific. Sorry.

    The top one looks Delaware.. I am not sure the leg color in that breed but that is what it looks like (male I think) and the second one... The leg color stumps me... Body looks like cuckoo marans and the legs should be whitish for that... but???? a cross perhaps
