In fact, at least one turned out to be a rooster. Just wondering what kind of hens these 2 are? Also the white has pretty large hackles and comb, thought there’s a chance it may be a he not a she. So far there’s no crowing. The brown one is pretty dark and has a lot of black details on her feathers. Obviously the multi coloured one is our rooster. Thanks again.

    The white looks like a Columbian rock pullet. Not sure on the others.

    The white one looks like a Delaware, the partridge colored one I'm unsure. Could be a mix with that pea type comb. Both are hens.

    I looked the breed you said up on the white one and I believe you are right. Thanks.

    Thanks for the response. I’m pretty sure now by looking up both breeds said that it is a Colombian rock. Thanks again.

    None have feathered feet. That’s why I was having problems figuring them out.

    If the one is a mix than they both could be mixes. I think Columbian rocks are common.
