A week and a half ago, someone went behind my back and hatched out a couple of beautiful peeps. Knowledge of their variety would be wonderful, if it's possible at this age. :) Both are bantam class, and almost certainly pure OEGB. Crele-type, to be exact, due to a spot on the head. However, leg color isn't shaping up to be pink (maybe eliminating 100% Crele parentage?). One sports an unusual yellow cast, and the other's (though most pictures are washed out) feet appear blueish. I'm pretty sure they'll be slate-legged in the future.

Anyhow, here's a list of OEGB colors found in our flock:
Crele
Red Pyle
Blue/Splash Breasted Red
Brassy Back
Ginger Red
White
Barred
Spangled
Silver Duckwing

Although I've already ruled all these out for various reasons, here's a list of other bantam breeds, in case I'm incorrect:
Cochin
Hamburg
Rosecomb
Phoenix
Rhode Island Red
Easter Egger
Ameraucana
Buckeye
Polish
Wyandotte
d'Uccle
Faverolles
Silkie

I moved things over to a more suitable section, so hopefully this gets deleted. :lol:
Hmm! They are cute! I think they are still Crele. :love
Thank you so much! :love Sweet, too. :)

It's entirely possible, considering I have Crele cockerels AND pullets. However, that leg color is really throwing me off! :confused: Creles should sport orange/pink at this age. Reminds me more of my Brassy Backs.

What are the possibilities they're 50% Brassy Back, 50% Crele? Not knowledgeable about plumage color genetics, but I read a slate-legged roo over a white-legged hen throws white-legged cockerels, and slate-legged pullets. (and these babies are females)
