    Is the hen laying yet? What color eggs? What color are the bottoms of thier feet?
    I'm thinking she is either a black sex-link or clean-legged marans. I didn't even think marans until I saw your rooster, and that is almost what a marans rooster can be expected to look like.

    Not sure of breed, but if you just found them, I wouldn't integrate them with your flock just yet. Keep them quarantined for AT LEAST 30 days before introducing them... Chicken diseases can be really deadly and can sweep through your entire flock quickly.

    I have another pen further away I can move them to.. so no trouble there I just want to add to they were given to me, they didn't just wandere here they were in a cage [​IMG] a lady who use to work with my mother left them for me but I didn't know till they showed up in the driveway I only learned where they came from after making a few phone calls... she has not layed yet... I am assuming she is getting used to her new home and that's why I'll check their feet.
    thanks for the replies!

    That rooster does look like a marans. If they are, you'll have chocolate colored eggs!

    The roo is not a marans. He has yellow legs.

    My best guess for the hen is either BSL or mutt.

    Didn't pay attention to the legs. He still looks very nice though.
