    So this "lady" dropped these two little boys at the feed store today. She didn't know what they were, so whatcha think? What are they? I have a guess, but would like other opinions
    BTW, look at their poor missing toes!!! Any even remote guess on their age?

    like japanese.

    I changed my mind and agree - Japanese/Sebright crosses.

    Iagree with bantychickmon on the cross and the missing toes could be from when they were babies and got pecked from overcrowding...I had 1 lose a toe that way...

    In that second pic he's standing to attention, just like a little Serama. But the lacing definitely looks like Sebright. Maybe Sebright/Serama X??

    Im going to go with the majority, looks like a seabright/jap cross. I can see what Angie is talking about, but that tail seems way to "big" for a serama or OEGB

    Thanks all! I figured some sort of JPN X but wasn't sure about the coloring and everything. They are brothers she said. They are a little skittish but very well behaved little men. I'm thinking of introducing Kawaii (my black tail/buff jpn) and Robert (yes, robert, that's my sis OEG HEN) to them just to see what we get. I think it would be a nice mix, my mom is a purest and doesn't like cross breeds or even colors. PSHAW I say! Any name suggestions? lol By bf says to name them nubby and stubby because they are both missing toes :mad:
