    My daughter picked a pair of these gorgeous chickens up and we have NO clue what they are, any clue?? They are about 3 weeks old if not older, clean legged, the rooster had a normal comb. They were in the assorted bantam bin and were white with black hour glass type markings on there back, she wanted to get all six, have i know they were going to turn out like this we would have. She picked up a pair so hopefully they'll breed. The female is VERY calm and friendly, the male is a little skittish but also friendly, well any thoughts???[​IMG]


    We have been going INSANE trying to figure it out (now watch us go "DUHH") Lol

    Yes I know they ARE pretty. There were 6 of these in the bin but we bought some other stuff too... so I told her only 6 of the bantoms so she put 2 others back... boy if id only known.

    I was thinking silver spangled... nope not right
    mottled d'uccles.... nope not right
    DANG what are these???

    Really happy with their coloring AND their tempermant, and this whatever it was/is... was not even on my radar as something I wanted!

    Thank you
