    I have looked at endless pics of both breeds. Can't seem to figure out what our Woody is?

    I was given these hens and rooster as a gift from a friend's friend. All she said about the breeds was she thought they were fancy breeds?

    If any one can tell from these pics, I am trying to figure out the two hens as well. One looks like a Golden Campine, but can't figure the solid tan one. The solid tan one has blue eyes.

    I don't think it looks like either. It looks very similar to a Cubalaya. Google search them and see for yourself. He's really pretty! I love those long tail feathers! [​IMG]

    OH! Wanted to say that both hens lay creamy colored eggs. I honestly don't know which is which, but one lays a creamy/pink color and the other is just a creamy color.

    I don't think he is. His tail is more errect. He has a normal comb, it's just layed down. He also has grey colored legs.

    ETA: He also has a brown chest, not dark.

    He's got game in him - definitely NOT a welsummer.

    This is a welsummer rooster:

    His comb screams cross breed and his tail and saddle feathers look like he has some long tailed breed like Yokohama or Phoenix in there. Your hens look like crosses too.

    I was really thinking the hens were. I couldn't find a single example of a blue eyed hen (I am a novice, so could be completely poor at this searching thing). [​IMG] I was thinking the golden one was Campine and Golden Lace? I don't know. The buff colored/blue eyed one is small then a Buff O, and has slight feathering on her feet. So I was thinking cochin and Buff O?

    Here is the welsummer I found online that resembled him:

    And here is the EE (Ameraucana) that I found:

    What exactly do you mean by game in him? I looked at longer tailed breeds...but figured if he had some of that in him, he must have a mix because he doesn't quite look like any of them.

    I know he is one gorgeous man!! [​IMG]

    OH! And the hens lay beautifully! I get about an egg a day from them.
