    I'd vote the black one with feathered feet looks like a Cochin, the gold colored one looks like a Buff Orpington if it has pink/white feet.

    The black fluffy butt is a cochin hen.

    The goldish hen.....doesn't look like any pure bred to me. IMO she's got the wrong color and body shape for an Orpington, she's too light for a New Hampshire, not quite the right patterning for a red sex link. What color legs does she have, any feathers?

    Oh, and are you in the US?

    Your first bird is a Cochin, and the second one may be a Buff Orpington or Orpington mix.
