    Someone local is selling them and she does not know what they are. Is the black and white one a magpie? They all white one in the back is a Pekin I am guessing.... Or are they all just a mix breed. Thanks!

    Looks kinda magpie-ish to me. How old are they?

    Likely crosses. Most pekin mixed with darker breeds (swedish, rouens) can feather out with spotting similar to a magpie or ancona. But they are still a crossbreed. It doesn't make them a magpie or ancona just because they may look like one
