    the one on the right is either a Light Sussex, or a Delaware....they have the same coloring though sussexes have darker heads. theyre very similar in traits also.
    the one on the left might be a Easter Egger/ameraucana these are basicaly the same also though I think commercial breeders sell easter eggers mainly.
    Those are my guesses

    Light Sussex or Deleware on the left. Right, I would guess Serma or Serma mix. Kinda hard to tell from such a small picture. How big is she compared to your other hen?

    none are sermas, they are to big..the one on the left is a light Sussex or Delaware rooster and the right look like a blue Orp or some kind of mix or even a Hatchery Blue Wyandotte hen
