    My sister in law gave me her chickens since they were moving. I was wondering what breed they are. She didn't know what they were. I'm hoping to move out my 4 year old rooster and move this new one in as he and the hen have just hit the one year mark.

    The hen is a Black Sex Link.

    The male could be a mixed breed but he kind of reminds me of a Barnevelder.

    Thank you. I'll have to look that one up. He's huge tho. Bigger than my biggest hen and almost 3 times the size of my regular roo.

    The legs on the rooster look more pink/white than yellow. I'm guessing hatchery Black Copper Marans for him.
    The hen is a black sexlink.
