    They're a cuckoo breed mix, what exactly it's impossible to tell. Mixed comb types so definitely mixed parentage.
    PC is right the first is a cockeral. Saddle feathers getting going, rooster butt.

    They do look mixed.

    White Leg-Cuckoo Maran
    Yellow Leg- Barred Rock

    So it does look like you have a cuckoo.

    Could they possibly be cuckoo maran and barred plymouth rock cross? Or is that just me?
