    The first rooster - Does he have greenish yellow on the bottom of his legs or are his soles white/pink in color?

    The first hen - Are those legs feathered? She looks like a Cochin cross.

    The second hen - Are those muffs and a beard I see? Does she also have feathered less?

    They are splotchy pink

    Yes, she has feathered feet (pretty sure she is a cross breed)

    The second hen - Are those muffs and a beard I see? Does she also have feathered less?

    I don't know what a muff is, but she has a triangular shaped beard that goes up to her ear area...
    Yes, she has feathered legs, too.​

    Muffs are the part of the beard near her ears. [​IMG]

    So, that makes the top on a Black Australorp, the first hen likely a Cochin cross, and the second one an Easter Egger or Ameraucana x Cochin or Brahma.
