    I picked this little girl up from a local feed store this morning and initially thought she was a White Chinese but after a serious bath and some time to fluff out, I can really see some silvery-colored down showing aruond her bald spot and on her neck.

    I believe the white breeds they carry are White Chinese, Embden and Roman Tufted.

    And idea what breed she may be?

    I'm guessing Embden but it could also be a White China.

    I'm thinking Embden. I currently have a pair that are about 12-14 weeks old. They sure did start out looking a whole lot like your little one. These are my first Embdens. I have Roman Tufted, Tufted Buffs and 5 Sebbies.

    I'm so glad your new babies have a secure and safe home with you!

    Thank you guys, i thought the bill looked chinese but the silver threw me. I had white chinese last year and they were all yellow, but my female did take a LONG time to develop her 'bump area' to where it was more noticable.

    I will check those links out later tonight. [​IMG]

    These are my chinese when i first got them. They were also in a not very nice condition when i bought them, very pale and dehydrated.
