    Both have black legs and white nails. The person I got them from had black sex link, ee's,white leghorns, and australorps. They all looked the same as ckicks then 2 started to lighten up and their heads were more brown than black.

    They're mixed breed cockerels. That color's what you'll get mixing black and many of the red/brown colors.

    Thank you, they are beautiful. I was a little upset they weren't BA's but I love the coloring. Especially the one with white/tan feathers. He's going to be georgeous!
