    I was thikning some kind of rock, orpington or sussex due to comb, red ear lobes and white shanks. but can't find pics of any that color with the partridge/pencilling on the feathers. I wonder if they are one of the 'new' varieties or a greenfire type bird...really pretty.

    Some of those feathers look partridge to me..

    I'm stumped. They are gorgeous though! Should be a breed if they are not already! [​IMG]

    I'm guessing a Sussex cross. It looks all Sussex yet that's not a variation of Sussex. In another word; Idunno.

    Quote:Yes, it is rather similar...I wonder if the ones on the manna pro site are one of those crosses like the legbar, welbar, etc...buff columbian with pencilling...like a buff sussex with some kind of pencilled bird.
