    They look like Buff Orpington x Silver Spangled Hamburg.

    The spots remind me of my SSH mix. [​IMG] Hope that helps somewhat!

    This one is not purebred. It is some sort of mutt.. Though I'm not sure exactly what.

    I believe they are lemon blue (in color), not sure what breed. They almost resemble a cochin or an orpington, maybe a cross?

    I doubt that bird has Hamburg of any color in it, simply by it's body build. I would definitely be guessing, but i suspect Buff O. and some silver gened blue bird of standard size loose feathered bird, but what i have no idea.

    Quote:It's a very strange looking bird. I wasn't sure on the hamburg part of it, I just looked at the second pictures tail feathers and it reminded me of my SSH mix. She has a much leaner body than these chickens though.. Not sure what it would look like mixed with a BO though..

    The first picture looks like the body type of my BO.
