Any idea what this is? (BTW- I know it's a chicken!)

    She looked kind of astrolorpish, but as she gets bigger, she gets more silver on her breasts. I have her sister and brother as well. The other pullet is just like this one, with gold on the breast, and the brother is totally black.
    This is a pic of her sister and brother (his booty anyway)

    This is another of her brother.

    The guy in the back is unrelated...Any ideas on him? [​IMG]
    He is actually black with gold on him, and he has a pea comb, I believe it's called. It is definitely not a rose comb or straight comb.

    EDIT--These guys are the size of a full sized bantam OEG, and they are approximately 3&1/2 months old.

    Are they supposed to be purebred or mixed? Are they standard size?

    I don't know what they are. I bought them with a hen this summer, who was not their mama, she tried to kill them when I got them home. They are probably bantam sized, but a bit bigger, as there is a bantam pullet that runs around with them that is about the same age, but half as big. They are not full sized, I don't believe. My dad has some full sized 'chicks' running around the yard that are about the same age, and those are at least twice as big as these, if not 3 X's bigger.

    ETA- the black and gold one in the back is a bantam, they are the same size as he is, and about the same age I think.
