    I've had my rooster and hen for about a month now and after countless Google searches, I still have no idea what breed they are and I would like to know so I can learn more about them. I'm hoping someone here knows what they are.

    Darcy (rooster) and Lizzie (hen).

    Mixed breeds, most likely silkie crosses.

    Silkie/ Cochin mixes are pretty common. I have one that looks very similar but mine's black.
