    These two guys tolerate each other and take good care of the girls. They're great to have around and I like how they look. I imagine they are mixed but have no idea with what. Any guesses?

    The blue looks like a Cochin but given his stance, I would lean more towards a Cochin cross possibly with Langshan. He has very heavy leg feathering for a cross and a Langshan in there should not diminish the leg feathering.

    The red one is probably Cochin cross possibly with production red or New Hampshire. He doesn't have the leg feathering of the blue and his red coloration is very typical of a New Hampshire.

    Very handsome boys.

    They are Cochin crosses. The first has more of the Cochin characteristics than the 2nd.

    Could Roo 1 maybe have some Blue Andalusian in him? I definitely see Cochin, especially with those fuzzy feets. They are both gorgeous! Are either of them very "Roo-ish" and mean?

    Quote:I doubt he would have Andalusian. His stance/carriage is all wrong for either an Andalusian or a Cochin. Plus, an Andalusian would probably reduce the amount of leg feathering.
