Bought these a couple months ago. Still not sure about breed or colour.

    Two hens and two Roos, but I only have decent pics of these two ATM. Hens have single comb and Roos have rose comb. Any help with breed or colour would sure be appreciated.

    Do you know what color eggs they lay?

    The hen resembles my Ancona, except she's only black and white. They are beautiful.

    Eggs are a creamy pinkish. Bigger than you would think for size of hen, but still smaller than peewee on the egg scale. The darker egg is for scale and is a med/lg.


    Darn, pics won't load through phone. I'll fix it when I get up to real Internet.

    Maybe Swedish Flower Hens? Are they small?

    They're silkie sized. Taller and leaner but about the same weight. Maybe a little lighter. Very good fliers, roost in the tree next to my house when not caged up.

    The hens aren't taller actually, just the Roos.

    I also have chicks. Some are wild type pattern(what I always call chipmunk) and some are more one color lacking the stripes. One has outer white primaries @ 3 weeks and another(I think) is white with a brown dot on the head and a big brown slash on the nape. All of them are fast like the dickens already.
