    I just got this 'breeding pair' the other day. They were free, so the price was right. The woman who had them got them from someone else and knew nothing other than that they are about 5 mo old (though she says the hen has hatched a batch of chicks already, so....?). At first I thought OEGB, but then I noted the roo's rose-type comb. The hen has a dark comb and for all I know could be a different breed entirely. There is also every possibility that their breed is "little chicken".

    The photos aren't great. They're still in quarantine from the remainder of my flock and a dog crate does not provide optimal photography. Also they're completely wigged out from the move (and perhaps naturally).

    Thanks in advance.
