    Just looking at them screams a really common breed I should know off hand. For the life of me it will not come to me. LOL My son got these for me today. That little roo crows when you hold him. He is loud!

    What are these two?

    These are the best pictures I could get because it is so dark out there.

    Dorkings have single combs.

    The rooster looks like wyandotte/barred something(probly single combed) cross.

    The hen looks like a columbian/wheaton color cross. Not sure on breeds

    Quote:Dorking can also be rose combed, but theybare very rare.



    But they are all mixes of something, the first two appear to be close barred birchen in color and and the second hen is similar to a silver ginger color but they are all mixes of something.
