    My guess is Silver Spangled Hamburgs. They looks like my Golden one. I could be wrong though!

    Is that rooster hen-feathered?

    Don't Hamburgs have rose combs?

    Are they mottled japs? I'm not sure, but they sure are pretty.

    Quote:no, don't think so.. he is still young. prob about 7 months old.. as his spurs is set, just not that big yet.

    The pics don't show their legs real well.. don't japs have "short" legs? these have regular length legs. I'll try to get some better pics of their legs!

    I am so glad you posted these pictures. I, too, have birds that look EXACTLY like these! One has white legs, the others yellow. But other than the full sized different colored legs, they are exactly the same. They have a green sheen to their feathers in the sun.
