    The red and black Has feathery cheeks and feathered legs. he/she was black as a chick.
    The gray one has feathery green legs. Green legs - green eggs? Thought she was a silky when she hatched but is not quite as fuzzy now.

    They both look like mixed breeds. The red and black one looks roosterish to me, while the grey one looks like a hen. Green legs may mean they could potentially carry the green egg genetic, but it does not mean they will lay green eggs. They seem to be a mix of a booted bantam and cochin bantam.

    They both look like mixed breeds. Second bird is a cockerel, and I'm leaning toward cockerel for the first bird pending better pictures. If the first bird has a pea comb, it may indeed have genes for blue/green eggs, as would coming from a blue/green egg.
