    Bottom one in the first pic looks like part orpington. Feathered or clean legged? Leg color? Can't tell from the pics.

    Your other unknown looks like a cross. Would like a better shot of the comb and the legs. In the top pic it looks feather legged. Eyes may be going but not sure if that is a peacomb or not.

    The puffy feather legged ones look like cochin crosses... maybe just cochins since their leg feathers are pretty big.

    I was debating that. I do have some orpington girls here that feathered out heavy and have that cochin thigh going on though. That's why I was interested in a leg shot.

    Looks like a blue and a splash cochin. Not show stock, but should make great pets and will set.
