    They are aprox 6 weeks old. One is clearly more male than the other. But I have no idea what they are. They looked like little chipmunks with painted eyes as day olds.

    I'm guessing the parents were chickens, but it's hard to tell...................

    They came from cackle.

    I have no idea about the breeds, but wanted to say how pretty they are, especially the second one. [​IMG]

    I would say with the Blue legs that they are a Phoenix.

    The rooster looks to be a cross between Silver and Gold and the hen looks like a silver...

    That's what I was leaning to, but it is hard to find pics of males at this age and hens in general.
