    I bought a lot of birds from a friend and don't know what these two breeds are. I have kept raised and sold a lot of birds but can't put my finger on these [​IMG]

    Hi there and [​IMG]
    I think the first is a Gold partridge Pekin bantam cross rooster.
    I am not sure about the second one.
    Goodluck,
    Fionn

    I think you got the color right. but I'm pretty sure it's a full-size chicken and from what I see the body shape isn't right. You know of any other standard breeds in that color? Thank you the speedy response!

    Both look like mixed breeds to me. It is hard to tell what breeds went into the first one. The second hen may be a Black Sex link, or possibly have Black Sex-link or a Copper "something" (maybe Marans) in her background.

    Oh and I'm 90% sure I got the first one in a shipment of assorted pullets from cackle hatchery. It is probably 6 months old

    I can see the copper maran in her thats my best guess. it Has a white wing feather I've seen that a lot in crosses.
