What do you think?
No clue what I'm looking at, but would love to have one that looked like it!
Well, since we are not totally sure what it is, we are in the same boat. I think I know what it is but I am not sure whether it is the same as an existing color. But it is cool, and certainly unexpected.
What do you think it is?
Is it a hen?
Not quite ready to say. I bought a trio of birds (obviously silver pied) of color X last winter from a well known breeder. I left those birds in a grow out pen for the breeding season as I did not want to harass them any more than necessary. There was a color Y bird left in that pen as well. Lots of weird stuff happened in the spring. I started getting birds of color Y which should not have happened as I did not have a male in my possession anywhere on the farm and I got three of the new color birds. At first, I thought the new color birds may have come out of one of my other pens (cameo pied white eye) and were actually cameo silver pied or maybe that they were peach silver pied and I was unaware that my male was split peach. They turned into what you see, however.
I wonder whether they are Taupes but until someone who knows looks at them in person, I just don't know.
They both appear to be hens.
Very pretty whatever they are.
looks like peach coloring over white, are any of them peacocks?
I don't believe either are males.
