    Hello. I’ve had so many people saying different stuff about my new pair. Can anyone please tell me what do I really have? This hen is suppose to lay eggs anytime soon and I want to know what type of chicks I can expect

    This is the Female ⬇️ Didn’t have any wing band!

    This is the shed (8X13X10) in the back that we have built for them. Its made of pallets It’s not completed yet.
    And they have a 30X30 pen to run around. It’s right next to our chicken pen.

    All the pics are original & taken by my iPhone 8Plus today.

    Any information will be appreciated. I want to do every possible thing to make them feel comfortable. And hopefully hen will start laying soon and have some beautiful chicks out of them.

    Thank you in advance!

    Yes he is very beautiful. I think he is a Buford Bronze Pied WE maybe split to cameo (one of the breeders in Texas thinks that he is bronze from the pictures I showed him) but again I could be wrong.

    Are you sure it's a Bronze ? probably a Cameo !
    Bronze color = dark english green !

    [​IMG]

    Cameo is a sex-linked color !
    India Blue Pied White eyes cameo X India Blue Pied cameo = 25% White + 25% Dark IB cameo Pied WE female and Dark IB Pied WE split cameo males + 50% IB cameo Pied WE female and IB Pied WE split cameo males.

    Male :
    Corlor = Cameao.
    Pattern = Pied + white eyes .

    Note :
    The male is not very pure! ... why is the wing half 'one color' and half barred ?
    I believe it has spalding antecedents ... that's where this half-wing comes from in a matte color.
