    First two pics are left and right view of the rooster. He has three hens with this coloration. I'm sure they are mixed. One had blues eyes.

    Sorry for the small pics. Shot these with my blackberry.

    They look like Delawares to me, but I am not an expert on the breed.

    I don't know how he ended up with them, but goes on about they are his favorites. I asked if I could take a pic today to find out what they really are.

    Looked closely in his pen and he also has a blue copper maran hen that I'll be trading him for this afternoon. He said he had a hen laying reddish brown eggs in there. He didn't know which one. BINGO!!!

    They don't have feathered feet. Appear to have light to white legs. Amber eyes (all but one who has blue eyes).

    Columbian rocks do look much more like them. With the funky eye color and light legs, they must be mutts.
