    They look like black breasted reds as blue would be light grey blue in the tail, wings and chest. But the pullet has got me confused. I've never seen a hen display rooster colouring. A black breasted red hen is partridge coloured. How old are they? Could it be the least dominant of the three so not developing as quickly? Yet it looks to have rounded saddle feathers. Quite the little mystery!

    They sound like they've found a great home with you (and your son - gorgeous). We have a bb red hen who is very broody and I absolutely adore her. She is currently raising some Orpington babies for my Mum. They are great little birds.

    I am wondering what my 2 old english bantam roosters are and the hen as well. I'm guessing blue breasted red and golden duckwing for the roosters and no idea on the hen. These are 4h projects for my daughter and stepdaughter.
