    Not sure on the first but the second one looks like a silver leghorn pullet.

    I did a bit of hunting for you and she's possibly a red shouldered Yokohama. I'd never seen her colouring other than on a jubilee Cornish and she's far too fine to be one of those!

    Cornish are heavy and chunky. Your girl is far too fine and long legged. Look them up on Google Images.

    I agree the first bird is a white laced red Cornish. She's a juvenile, so she's not as broad. But I'm thinking a frontal pic would show the classic Cornish shape, with the broad stance and wide breast.
    She's definitely got the lacing. Red shouldered birds aren't laced.
