    Both look like barnyard mixes to me, unless I'm not familiar with their breeds. The dark face on the hen makes me think she might be mixed with a Sumatra, and the roo looks like some sort of RIR cross.

    These definitely look like Welsummers to me, especially that rooster. Where did you get them from?

    I got both from local people. The Rooster my daughter picked out because he was "pretty" lol. The hen was from a guy who was getting out of chickening. He said all his stuff was ordered as day olds from a hatchery and it was a mixture of pure breds but he couldn't remember what kind. We also got several polish hens from him that e had got from the same place. We got them for next to nothing to replace or hens that were killed earlier this month and I was just curious what the hens might be.
