    Confused!!! HELP!

    I've had a breeder tell me they were Serema (very small birds) and then several other ppl tell me they are OEG....ugh
    Now that I hatched Serema girlfriends for them, should I forget that and get OEG?
    ....and yes, they DO stand upright with tails almost touching head...I'm just a bad photographer...

    Blue (aka, boo-boo)

    I'm guessing Old English Game-Serama mix. Possibly pure Old English Game. NOT a Serama. They're pretty though.

    Ok, um...
    Any idea what colors they would be listed as?
    I'm guessing blue something for Boo-Boo...

    Poor lil guys, now I have to start all over again to find them a Lady friend or 2.

    What did the person that you got them from call them?

    How much do they weigh?

    I am leaning toward Serama...

    Does boo boo have pink legs also? They are OEGB. Boo Boo looks lemon blue and the other looks like gold duckwing

    I picked them up while buying a few hens with a friend. The woman just had about 15 in this lil cage and said if we wanted some they were free...

    I felt bad for them so I took the 2 and my friend took 2 more.
    I brought him with me to visit a Serema breeder up north and she said he was perfect (except Blue's comb was too long) These 2 are much smaller than her B class Serema's... She said A class?
    I haven't a scale to weigh them, but they aren't much taller than a 16 oz water bottle...
    Their colors are what leads me to think OEGB...
    or perhaps what 'KOOSHIE' said, maybe a mix?
    Weird thing is the woman I got them from was keeping only the silver one...for show...and they were all the same age??
    If they came from the same hatch, either someone has a variety of diff birds and mixed the eggs for all colors...or... because Serema's are all colors that must be them???
    See why I'm confused?? lol
    Thanks so much for helping all!

    Wow...its the Gold Duckwing color (Calico) that got me questioning...
    I couldn't find any of Boo's color so I wondered some more.

    Lemon Blue, hmm... could be? He really is a pure copper color in the sunlight. I guess that's why he wouldn't be good for show.

    They both had identical brothers in the cage too. Although my friend did take home the other 'calico' lookalike, and one dwarf/micro? (1/2 their size)

    Well I really could not say as I've only been around a few OEGs, but I have never herd of a Serema. so I did a search and found this http://myseramasite.com/some_of_my_seramas two of their boys look a lot like yours I think
