    Both of them look like mixed breeds. They might have some Old English Game or other game bird in them, or possibly some Cornish. As for the gender, it depends on the age. Do you know how old they are? The combs are rather red, but if they are older than four months or so, they are likely still females. I'm not seeing any pointy saddle or hackle feathers.

    She might have meant that they had some American Game Bird in them. Its another game breed, similar to Old English Game.
