    The roo looks leghornish. Crele Leghorn? Golden Cuckoo Leghorn?

    hen is not the same breed... looks like it could have cornish in it.

    They seem to be mixed breeds. The hen in the background of the last pic seems to be at least part Wyandotte due to her head shape and rose comb, but she is very definitely a cross. Wyandottes are good layers, generally. I have had six of those.

    Maybe your roo has some Barred Rock in him.... a Barred Rock X Brown Leghorn cross going by the barring and his color? His earlobes look pinkish to me too, possibly indicating a cross between a red-earlobed breed and a white-earlobed breed...just my guess. [​IMG]

    Either way they're nice looking mutts. [​IMG]

    The OP is in India, if that helps with figuring out the breeds.

    I would think that the mix on the roo and maybe the hen is cukoo color and not barred? He is handsome.
