    What breeds?? The one in the last photo could be a cockerel, just judging by the comb, but if it's a breed with a larger comb then that doesn't matter as much. My lady leghorns all look like cockerels when they're pullets because of their tails and combs.

    What could these two chickens be? The buff orpingtons is about 8/9 weeks old maybe a little older but is way refer than our other buffs are and the ee is about 6 weeks old and the comb is massive compared to pictures I have seen.
    Also these two are the only ones that seem to try and "fight" which usually the ee starts!

    I'd say the BO is a pullet. The EE seems to be a cockerel.

    I'm confused first a photo of a BO and an EE, and now one of black chickens.

    What or who do you want ID ?
