    Hatched March 22. When I got them I believe he said the breed name began with the letter F.

    i think favorelles too maybe.

    that's the only breed beginning with F i know.

    and they show a little resemblance to the adult picture i've seen.

    My Favorelle was never that dark in color. Where did they come from...a breeder? And did the breeder hatch them? I don't think they're Fayoumi, either. JMO

    Their not fayoumis (fayoumis don't have beards, those do. and their color is different). if its a F.. i can't think (or find) of any breed that matches them.

    I got them from a farmer/breeder. He hatched them himself.
    Thank you all for your help. Looking at baby pics of the 2 breeds, it is coser to the Fayoumi. Maybe a mix?

    I think they are a mixed breed, not EE's. The green legs happen frequently when a yellow legged bird is crossed with a darker legged bird. The coloring and posture look similar to a golden sebright but these are a little more diluted in color. I just think they are probably a backyard mix... [​IMG]
