Little snood, looks like feathering going up the back of the head, and looks like the breast feathers have light edges. Looks like a beautiful Bourbon Red hen. If the pics are different birds, then it would look like two hens to me.

Thank you all for your responses.......however, you are all wrong, and i say that in the nicest way possible, a week after i posted this my TOM started to breed with my black spanish hen, the eggs are fertile and in my incubator as of today, he also went through a growth spurt, and has started dispalying, on closer inspection i noticed the difference in the white and black tips on the feathers, i did not know that trick before, ive never had bourbon reds till now
