    The rooster has pink so is an Australorp. Thanks so much for the help.

    If you click on the pic above, you can zoom it a lot to see the hen better.

    The hens comb look awfully twisted up, so I'm think maybe Buttercup? [​IMG]

    The hen could possibly be a Black Sexlink also.

    Roo looks like an Aussie...the hen maybe a Buttercup, judging from the comb and color pattern.

    For hen, you can rule out buttercup and penedesencas. They both have have white ear lobes. Sexlinks can vary so much in coloration, that is a possibillity.

    does the hen lay yet? if it starts laying colored eggs, like blue or green, then its definatly an Easter Egger or an Ameracauna. I have two much lighter, but my grandma has very dark ones that look a lot like that.
