    I got 2 cockerels and a pullet from a local breeder. They were supposed to be jubilee orpington. But clearly they are not. The breeder wont tell me what they are as she denies them as being of the 7 she sold me. Can anyone please help me identify this breed? One pic is a pullet the other is a cockerel i believe. They are about 9 weeks old. 20180520_164139.jpg 20180520_164128.jpg

    They look like crossbreeds to me as well. Possibly Jubilee Orpington mixed with something blue, they do have the Orp white skin. I think they are both cockerels.

    They look like off colors from a Jubilee project. Maybe she is trying to breed Blue Jubilee's or Blue Laced Reds.

    I dont know what else she had. She is not cooperating at all. She denies them as being ones she sold me. But they are from her.

    Just call them a mix.
    You will probably never know what exact birds they came from although it can be fun to guess.
