    do they have feathered feet? If so i would guess light brahma
    If not, then a Delaware. I'm no, expert :) Just my opinion

    There definitely not Light Brahmas as they have single combs rather than pea combs. If their legs are yellow, they are likely Delawares (possibly Columbian Rocks), if their legs are pinkish, they are Light Sussex.

    They look like Delaware or Delaware crosses to me.
