    He is about a year old, unsure exactly as he was rescued.

    He came with this girl who I think is a chamois campine (judging by her appearance, temperament (sqwarky and flighty) and egg colour (small and white)) but I am happy to be told otherwise.

    The rooster appears to be a poor example of a Gold Penciled Hamburg. I'm not sure about the hen. Chamois Campines are very rare, and her coloration isn't right. However, I suppose it is a possibility.

    Looks like a Buff leghorn hen and a Mixed or poorly colored Hamburg rooster.

    Thanks so much for the replies... I looked up the buff leghorn hens and didn't see the match at all, they have yellow legs and no penciling unless I'm missing a whole load that have slate legs and markings. The only hen I've seen pictures of that look like her are the chamois campines (hence the guess). Totally agree that the roo looks like a gold hamburg, but without the penciling (!)
