    Mixed breed. There's something barred a ways back the gene pool, and probably something Colombian colored. Rose combs and feathered legs are both dominant, so they could have been added a while back. rose comb and barring could mean Dominique, but they're lighter bodied birds. Maybe mixed with something heavy like a Brahma? Really, who knows.

    the white one looks a bit like my brahma except the colour. probably brahma / small bodied egg layer mix. or brahma / bantam mix. I am not an expert, just my opinion.
