i havent seen chickens that color before so i will guess some sort of mix
edit: i should say that color combination on a pure breed
They look like Buff Orpington x Silver Spangled Hamburg.
The spots remind me of my SSH mix. Hope that helps somewhat!
total newbie but isn't there a breed/type called a lavendar ........ um... lavendar.. dang, can't think of it... but I've seen picts of birds with blue/silver backs, and that buff front on here somewhere.
Quote:It's not a breed, it's a colouring.
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.
I have a blue orp crossed with a buff orp that looks the same
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.
Look likes a cross from blue and buff, possibly orpington.
