    My neighbour offered me some hatching eggs from this pair she's got but her and i are both unsure of the breed. Any ideas?

    P.s sorry its not a great picture

    To me, those look like mixes. But, I'm not all that familiar with most England breeds, so they may be an actual pure breed that we don't have in the United States.

    I'm also thinking mixed breed. They could be a project color, but if the owner doesn't know what they are that's kind of a moot point. They'll make pretty babies I'll bet!

    The cock in the picture looks like he's a Crele variety of something, a Penedesenca, or a mix. The hen looks like she's maybe a mix.

    Could the rooster be a crele orpington?
