  2. I'm not sure what the first one is (could you get a clearer head shot?), but I'm pretty sure the second one is an Ancona.

    The first one could be an Australorp
     
  4. I don't think so, note the white earlobe.

    What hatchery did they come from?

    The first one has the body shape and white earlobes of a Black Minorca, so I think that's what she is. Its also possible that she's the black version of the Blue Andalusian. The second bird is an Exchequer Leghorn or a Mottled Ancona.

    First bird is either a Black Minorca or a Black Andalusian. The second bird is either an Exchequer Leghorn or a Mottled Ancona, but I'm leaning towards Ancona because they are more common.

    That would make the second bird an Ancona, and the first could be an Andalusian or a Mincora, but I'm leaning toward Mincora as it looks heavier-bodied.
