    I have no idea what he could be. not a Columbian Wyandotte, not a Light Brahma, I am pretty sure he isn't a Delaware either. Strange.

    Are you located in the US or outside of the US?

    The pure white appears to be a White Minorca, white earlobes, white legs and feet, but I am not quite sure about the black and white one.

    I was going to say Lakenvelder, but the legs and earlobes don't match. I'm going to guess Light Sussex, but the body type seems completely wrong to me.

    Quote:I'm in New England. Got the eggs from a college farm, so they could be anything. I thought Delaware or Lakenvelder too, until I did more investigating and realized the legs were the wrong color, as was the tail. They're very pretty birds. Alas, I only have 6 hens, so I can't keep 2 roosters and have to find them a home.

    White Minorcas are a bit more common in the north than the south, so it's possible that the one on the right is a White Minorca.

    The other one though......
