    I know the Black Rooster is a Langshen, what is the white and black one? He or she has feathery legs..Hangs out with the rooster all the time.

    How old are they? Both look like boys to me, very long in the legs.

    they both look like mixed breeds to me. They both look like they had one feather legged parent as they both have pretty scant feathers.

    Both are boys, the legs are too long and I'm seeing some pointy, shiny feathers in each one. The black one might be a poor quality Langshan, or a Lanshan mix, as it doesn't have much leg feathering. The other bird could be a poor quality Silver-laced Cochin, or possible a Dark Brahma. However, I think that it could be a mix too, as it doesn't look quite right either.
