    Hi Guys,

    I have a brother and sister from the same batch of eggs we incubated

    Dougal and Fruity

    Dougal is mostly black and gold

    Fruity is mostly white with black and some gold

    Both Red Crests and BEAUTIFUL :)

    When we got the eggs we were told that they were Rhode Island Reds, but clearly to the eye these chooks are no Rhode Island Reds!

    We also thought maybe 'Australorps'?

    Someone else suggested the Faverolle breed, as the colouring between Male and Female is so different, but Faverolles have hairy feet an extra toe and a beard and these two are bald as coots on the tootsies!

    Anyway, any suggestions would be a bonus :)

    We would like to put a name to such beautiful faces

    Look forward to hearing from any of you soon

    Lucy

    The profile pic is way too small to see the birds. Could you post a pic on the thread?

    He looks to maybe be a Silver Duckwing OEGB...she may be a Splash OEGB...Please don't take my word for it tho...I'm fairly new to chickens & only really know about the ones I have researched to find the breeds of my own chicks.
