Anyone know what these 2 orpington roos would be called? Splash, creole, chocolate, something else?

The one on the left isn't an Orpington "might be a Blue Copper Marans". The one on the right is a mixed color. He base color is neither buff or red but somewhere in the middle, black in the tail indicates other genes in the mix, he also appears to have some barring in his hackle.

Thanks Jed. He has nice shape. He'd could be useful in maybe a Barred Red project but that's about it. I don't think I'd use him in a Crele project myself.

Idk what either are. One on the right doesn't appear to be either an orpington or Blue copper marans. Legs are too dark for either and color would be off for marans.
Other kinda looks orpington but IDK. His pattern is same as a new hampshire red.
