More of my "rare assortments" from MPC... They're all 5 weeks old.

I was thinking cream legbars for the first two. They're supposed to be pullets, but I disagree :rolleyes:

And then this guy I was thinking golden campine. Again *supposed* to be a pullet, very strongly disagree there...

Thanks for any insight!

A little digging in MPCs website turned up "Partridge Olive Eggers" in their "Rare Assortment". I think this is what you have. They appear to be a Legbar hybrid of some kind. Not a recognized breed and won't likely breed true.

It also looks like, in my opinion, you have 3 cockerels there.

They also have "cuckoo bluebars" that are a CLB cross. These have a lot of color bleed but I think it's possible.

Agree all three look like cockerels.
3rd does look like a campine.
First two do look like legbar crosses of some sort.
Unfortunately MPC crosses a lot of breeds then sells them under a fancy name so unknowing buyers presume they're a true breed.

6 weeks old now. This is the one from the first picture and is feathering in more like a pullet than the guy from the second picture in the original pictures.
