    I have looked on Google and cannot ID them. They are very streamlined, and now about six months old. Thanks for the help!

    Grey, American gamefowl.. In my opinion. would say "Old englishs" but old englishs. do not have blue legs.. just white, Black, and...well blue. but only white in her variety. which is (Silver duckwing)

    Thank you very much. I sure wish one of them had been a rooster, I googled and they are beautiful.

    I was also wondering about leg color, one has blue legs and the other has yellow legs.

    Those absolutely do not look to be large fowl birds. I would be extremely surprised if they were. A SQ bird should have shanks that are "white, tinged with pink", but if they came from a hatchery (or any other non show line), you should know that they are obviously going to be somewhat varied from the standard. You cannot expect every bird that doesn't exactly match all color standards for an oegb to be an american game. I understand that you raise them, but this is JMHO.

    Those are 6 month old pullets and my OEGB rooster, would come up to right below their wings (i had some pullets in there, their age.. awhile ago because they kept finding a way in the pen somehow). i understand your opinion, and will respect it. But since their color resembles the American gamefowl (and height), Not to mention the leg color of mine. i will stick to mine [​IMG]

    They are smaller than my Marans and Welsummers, I bought them at Orcheln's so they are from a local hatcher. Very skittish, just like my Faverolle. But they all get along, lol.
