    A friend of mine gave me a barnyard mix of chickens. There are Black Copper Marans, Auracanas, and Orpingtons. I have an idea what these are (She didn't know), but I'm putting this to the board! What breed/gender are these two? Pea combs, 5 toes (including the back one), and white legs.

    Well, they're both roosters.

    I could see some Dorking, that would give you the fifth toe, rose comb and white legs. I'd think the dorking's legs are shorter, though? Not a breed I'm too familiar with so can't say for sure.

    I agree, both are roosters. I'm not sure on the breed though.

    Thanks everyone!! I just heard back from the farm where they were originally from and they are a mix between an Americana/Favorolle and an Americana hen. Huh! Who knew? lol
