    Does anyone know what breed these two birds are ? I got them from the same person but not sure what breed they are or if they are the same breed and the person I got them from is not sure either. Any indication would be great thx.

    The hen on the left looks like some sort of game breed, maybe a bantam sub-breed, she is most definitely a partridge, I am unsure of the cock on the right.

    they're both mixed breeds, quite likely siblings or half siblings.

    The lightly feathered legs show they're a mix of something feather legged with something clean legged. The colors are common enough when you mix black and colored birds, there are multiple ways to get to those colors starting with different breeds.
