    Africa - near the equator
    Foreground - pullet, background - cockerel. Sorry, no clue on the breed.

    I think they have either cochin or silkie in them because of there leg feathers. I'm leaning more towards cochin. I don't know if it is full blooded cochin or mixed tho.

    Bird in front is a pullet, and the other one (in back) is a cockerel. Both look like mixes to me.

    I think you are all right on the gender, i was told they were the opposite when i rescued them! Just needed to check! I got him to check back through his email to find the breed and its called silver salmon marans but i have one already and he has no feather legs so i dont know if the man was right or not...

    I believe that some Maran's have leg feathers and some don't. I could be wrong though. :) Best of luck!
