    Can you tell me what breeds these two stinkers are? (I know they aren't the same breed)

    Crossbreds most likely. Possibly Easter Eggers.

    They're both mixed breeds. First one might pass for possible ISA Brown cross/mix.

    Can I say, their wings been clipped the wrong way.. supposed to cut the feathers on the "hand" part only, not all the way across.

    Also the first leg is showing signs of scaly leg mites- very common. Treat by either a dewormer such as ivermectin on the skin or orally(it works because they are blood sucking mites) and/or slather their legs completely with anything sticky and stays on such as vaseline, which works by suffocating the mites.

    Good idea to treat all birds even if their legs seem allright, it is very contagious but good news it's easily eradicated from flock if a whole flock treatment is done.

    I agree they're barnyard mix, likely mixes of mixes.

    good observations from Kev.
