    I am guessing that Titan is...a boy and a Leghorn

    Bell looks like a girl and looks to be redstar(?)
    but the picture is blurry

    Well I was going to guess rhode island. But she doesnt look quite like one. Maybe a mix between something.

    I see she has laceing.

    I am not 100% sure but I do think Titan is white leghorn.
    Although I know of another white breed but I can't put my finger on it.

    But who knows. I am probably wrong on this....

    Maybe you could browse through the breeds of large fowl birds on
    www.feathersite.com

    I am sure that will have what your looking for

    Titan is not a leghorn. They have white ears and yellow legs. He has white legs and red ears. I would think that he's the offspring of an orpington, because of his white legs. But that doesn't make sense if he's a RIR/orp cross to have white feathers. Lakenvelders are white, so maybe that would be the dad?

    And I bet Bell is an orp/RIR cross.

    How old are they? I had a chick that started out pure white but as he got older the red showed up more and more on him. He lives elswhere now but is white on his body but a beautiful golden red on his back and crest and wings.

    This was him last summer - he has A LOT more red now.

    So the red you see on Titan may start showing up more and more.

    (I should try to get an updated picture of the bird above - he is gorgeous now - but insane - which is why he had to leave my little backyard flock)

    I think you have a red sex link thing going on. If you knew the cross for sure, I bet all the boys would look like Titan and all the girls would look like Bell!
