    not sure how many of you will remember my original thread.
    this girl is still a mystery.

    no barring so i believe its a hen
    around 6 months old
    lighter than a cameo or purple
    parents are either purple, silver pied, blue, pied, 2 of them are split bs

    It would be helpful if you were to crop and enlarge the pictures before posting. I can see no detail in these pics.

    she could b just about anything honestly. my adult birds threw me some surprises lastyear. she does lool similar but in the middle pic your hen looks king of orangey ? maybe just lighting? but freedom is very dull and drab looking. just a creamy light brown all over

    I have pictures of young CBS spaldings. I can look through them and find some.

    Okay here are the pictures I found. I only kept two hens. One is still here (I included one close up head shot I took of her today) and the rest are just when they were little. The one who you see getting white was sold to a home where she would not be bred. They did have me stumped when they were younger though as far as the color went. [​IMG]

    @country_girl011 we really need pictures taken from closer to the bird, especially showing her head and neck, and looking down at her back and straight on towards her side. Try to fill the camera frame with the bird, and make sure there aren't any weird lighting conditions, like close to sunset or sometime when the light is a weird color. That will make it a lot easier to figure out, thanks!

    sorry but this bird has never been handled, is free ranged, and you can not get within 10 foot of her. im going to take my photography camera with me monday as she is at my grandparents. i will try to get better photos. buti will not stress her out by catching her.

    Well it's asking someone to identify something that pretty much can't be seen in any detail... Sure, not every bird is accustomed to being caught and handled, but even my cell phone has a pretty good zoom on it.
