    Sounds like an Australorp and a gold laced wyandotte. You can search those breeds and see if that's what they are. Or, you can post pics here.

    First of all: [​IMG]

    And secondly, Is the black iridescent one have black eyes and black legs and feet?
    Does she look like this?

    If she does, She might be a Black Austalorp...


    As for your other one....I'm not really sure.
    Does she look like this?
    [​IMG]<< Golden Laced Wyandotte

    Or This?

    I'm not really sure there is a recognized breed that is black with yellow lacing.

    (Pictures are NOT mine.)

    the black one looks about rite and the other looks like a less fancy version of the Golden Laced Wyandotte.

    Thank you!

    I have a hen that is red with silver lacing on her feathers from her shoulders to her tail. Her head is red and she has blue legs. She is a fairly docile bird and a good layer. She is so pretty that I would like to have more but I wonder if she is just a cross that I might not be able to get again. Any help would be appreciated. I have some good pics of her on my phone, but here she is with a couple others. Hope you can see it well enough to determine.
