    Possible, or just a bronze, or a cross breed with bronze coloring... is the second pic the same bird? The head looks more like a hen in that picture...

    The tail tips of a eastern would be much browner and not white. I would say bronze(not the broadbreasted variety, I mean like like a ridley) or maybe even Rio or Marriams wild .
