    Do you have bigger pictures?


    The first one appears to be a Golden Laced Wyandotte rooster in color, but his body type is strange....

    The black hen could be a multitude of things. I can't tell without better/larger pic.

    Hmmm I'd say the first one is a mixed black giant and the second is a game /japanese.

    The rooster looks like a hatchery cornish (AKA Indian Game) The hen is too far away to tell what she is.

    The poster is in England - I would guess hatchery Indian Game and the girly ?? Maybe a Rosecomb?

    If the OP is from England, they're not hatchery quality. They're simply mutts. The cockerel has a body completely different from Indian Games, plus the comb is way too big, and his color is way off. The pullet is something else.

    btw those feathersite images - [​IMG] Horrible representations of Cornish.
