I adopted 7 chickens about 6 months ago and I was able to figure out the breeds of most of them but two remain a mystery to me. Any help would be appreciated. The two in question are the rooster (pea comb, slate legs, low hanging wings) and the blue/grey hen (lays light green eggs, pea comb, slate legs, broody). Thank you for your help!

Interesting. I was thinking EE too, but the lack of muff and beard make me think otherwise.

Your rooster looks like a Belgian Bearded D'Anvers, but your hen look like a Bantam Easter Egger.

Thank you all! I did miss identify the rooster's comb. I think Wyandottes7 really hit the nail on the head. He looks identical to some of the Belgian Bearded D'Anvers I looked up. He definitely fits in the personally description too. He attacks anyone not willing to go through the effort of catching and holding him but he is very defensive of his hens (but not effective).
