    The black & silver in the center of the photo-- this was taken a couple of months ago, pattern is more distinct now--I have about 6 of them and don't remember what they are supposed to be!

    I'm guessing silver phoenix or game of some sort. Good luck!

    that's interesting-- I believe these were eggs I hatched thinking they were silver hamburgs it is possible they are a cross and the seller just didn't know it- or told me they were mixes and I just don't remember-- doesn't matter-- they are friendly little buggers and one in particular jumps on my head or shoulders the minute I step outside-- I just wondered if anyone had seen anything like them since I couldn't find any pictures of them---

    I have yet to meet a hamburg who is friendly, so if it's a hamburg, it's only part. Did they say silver penciled hamburg?

    I don't remember what kind of hamburg I thought I was getting (and I could be remembering the whole thing wrong-- I hatched lots and lots of babies this past year-- all of my chickens and turkeys are very very friendly-- to me anyway-- my husband says that the two of my many roosters attack him-- the SLW roos-- I've never seen it so don't know if he's exaggerating or not-- or maybe they just think he looks scary? ;0) they don't attack him when I'm outside --

    yeah I think you have some of my eggs which Back in one of the egg swaps I think I sent some to you. Is that the only one you got or did you end up getting a roo in there too. They will be white with black specks on their chest and a black tail with a rose comb.
