    Finally got the camera, so here ya go!

    Lil'Bit, D'Anver x OE Game Bantam... not sure of her exact age. She's a riot though.

    Prissy, the hen that hops into my lap when called, and not even for food! OE game, less than a year old, waiting on that first egg!

    And my pride and joy, Jibbers, the coolest rooster ever! Not sure what to call his color... OE Game, same age as his girl Prissy.

    Missing Chipmunk, the mean and hateful one. She hid in the house and only came out to grab some food. She's colored like Prissy, a little darker, and is full D'Anver. Course she hid on photo morning... told ya, she hates me. She's 2 years old.

    Really?? I've never heard of that color before. I spent awhile on google and here trying to figure it out too!

    My D'Anver hen is Quail colored too, it's why I got her, matched them even though she's a different breed. The Rooster that fathered the chick was a Spangled OE.... but she came out Buff-ish with cream colored spangles instead of white.

    Never put two and two together that maybe the coloring on the OEs would be the same.... duh.. LOL
