    From the White tips of the wings I would say at least part Red Bourbon maybe its hard to tell the colors are hard to make out and its only a guess on my part.
    They look like there going to be some pretty birds.

    They look like Bourbon Reds to me. My monitor shows a blueish tint to the under feathers, so perhaps a Bourbon Red cross? They are going to be beauties.
