    Anyone know what sort of chickens these are? Someone nearby has them on their property-- they're strays, and I've offered to catch them for him. Just mutts? They look awfully fancy for mutt chickens!

    Those appear to be easter egger roosters.

    Thanks! I thought they were both roosters too, though the guy who found them says the lighter one hasn't crowed and "moves" differently than the dark one (who has been crowing).

    One more picture just to be sure...definitely both roosters?
    If the light one is a hen, I have a space for her and will go get them and rehome the rooster. If they're both roosters, though, I'll let someone else go catch them! :)

    Definitely both roosters.

    The lighter one is probably just too intimidated by the other one to crow much----yet.
