Actually, i'm not 100% sure on the hen either...
They look like mixed breeds
Both look like barnyard mutts!
rooster looks like a buff polish crossed with something with a pea comb. he has a small crest.
not sure on the hen, do you know what color egg she lays?
she lays a small light brown egg so far.
do you know the combs of them what is the roos comb it looks like a pea comb but if you can get a little closer to the comb that would be nice but as of now they look like mixes
That's probably the best pic of him/his comb...
would say buff lace polish being involved is a great guess. it would nicely explain the dominant white and weak traces of lacing he has. not sure about being cross as the crest is very small even for a cross plus the comb seems unaffected by polish duplex comb plus his legs are yellow(which is a recessive gene- polish have white skin) so mix rather than cross. as in second generation from a cross.
that tail... so short and so squirrel(leans forward over the back) is a puzzler- what breed has that. The hen is probably related to him as they share the tail appearence. I wanted to suggest EE- great for pea comb source but that won't quite work.
actually i remember my rooster i had it was a ee looked just like this but he had a beard and his tail was a little straighter .... and his neck up by his head was a little colored
The hen is not related. Different years different sources. Got him from a small hobby farmer several hours away and got her from one nearby. Chances of relation are slim. Chances of having similar breeds is better. I would agree with a mix. The hobby farmer I got him from was incubating crosses and he was one of them. Nothing Polish looking that I saw though.
I do know that he's pretty.. beyond that...
