    The top one looks like a black sexlink/Easter Egger cross, the bottom one looks like an EE mix with maybe a wyandotte.

    Like I said, some sort of mutt. . . Both are from the same parents, I know that (they carry the same genes, same color patterns, just the male is gold/silver and barred, which is easily brought through sex-linked breeding) They probably have some Delaware and some sort of Production Layer in them.
