    Well, pretty sure of two of them. Tinsel is almost for sure a blue, and Cricket looks like blue splash. The baby Gus looks like it might be a blue/ buff, not sure of the 'proper' name of that color though. I have a hen that looks a lot like Pepsi, but with a bit more gold on her. Thought she was a Seabright, but now not so sure lol!

    Beauty and Lucky are Wheatens. Cricket is a mottled Serama. Tinsel looks like a Blue serama.

    They are very cute. Maybe that will be my next breed to get into in the comming years. I love the look.

    I was reading on line and it says that they come in over 2500 colors and dont breed true to colors. WOW! They must be fun to breed and to see what colors pop out.

Cricket-Spangle. zipper- no idea. pepsi-I want to say brownred.. but looks like it could resemble... Brassy back? Scooter looks like a blue buff something lol..
