    I'd need to see the whole bird to say. . . It's obviously a cross of colors, but nothing can be truly said with just that photo.

    [​IMG] I will have to go back to the grow out pen again for another pic of the "buff" but how about a guess on this one? I do have another shot of it .it gets more lacing on the chest, and barring on its back the older it gets.it also has a red stained look over the base color.

    The two pullets that I could see were crossed variety colors...and not any recognizeable standard color.... You don't know their parents? Are you trying to make a new color or introduce these to a new breeding program....? They have a very interesting color and pattern.... It's hard to tell what may be in their background..... but nice back yard chickens

    Not trying to make any colors,just trying to figure out what I have. I bought them from a breeder in an auction and I figured at the time it may have been some culls but I did get a few nice chicks.the buff has a small tuft so I may use her if I could find a roo, but what color would you use.? I see lots of araucana breeders who have pens of mixed colors together.I have bought from two on here and gotten mixed colored chicks, so I am not sure if its on purpose or not:idunno. But I do like them .
