    Honestly, I wouldnt know. I don't have OEGBs personally, but the overhead shot in particular has the body and head shape and size to be OE. Could even be a mixed color, but I'm sure someone who knows more about them will come around soon. Weekends are a bit slower at BYC than during the week.

    It's hard to see in the pic, but does it have white earlobes? If so, it's not an OEGB, they should have red. As for the color, it kind of looks like a black-breasted red, but not exactly. A closer pic would be helpful.

    See? I knew someone would come along who knew more than me about this one! I can't tell for sure about the earlobes in the pic and that would make a difference.
