    I think they look like Australorps, they have the beautiful black, glossy feathers with the blues and greens in them, but they have a bright white spot by their "ear", and they lay white eggs. I've asked and asked, but so far haven't gotten any answers

    Not Black Australorps...they do not have the white on the side of the head...theirs is red also. I've seen these before but can't for the life of me think of their name...someone will be along soon I'm sure...nice pair though!!

    They look like Minorcas to me. Nice white eggs. They are a Mediterranean breed.

    Agree on the Mincoras.

    Thank you both! They do have nice, white eggs, and are very sweet, if almost too timid.

    I would say that those are andalusians. They come in blue, black and splash. You have the black. If you had a splash rooster you would get blue chicks. (look up the BBS breeding info for detailed charts)
