    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    They are all mixes. They look like mainly buff/partridge mixes?

    I'd say they're just mixed colors. The first one looks like a blue x buff or red and the others look similar to a ginger red.

    your top roo is gorgeous, he looks JUST like my young EE roo. It kind of does look like a red pyle, but with blue added.
