    and this roo:

    The hen is an unknown breed/breeds and the roo is a Mille Fleur/Sebright mix.

    With that mix of genes, the possibilities are limitless.

    The hen looks like an EE.
    What color are her legs ? ?

    Quote:She isn't an EE because:
    a) She has no muffs whatsoever
    b) She doesn't look like an EE (that is a pic of about 7-8 weeks old, she is fully grown now). She is a pretty small bird. [​IMG]

    I believe she has blue-ish/gray legs with a little bit of buff feathering on them

    EE's can come bearded or non-bearded, any color, have any color legs (even have feathered legs), large fowl or bantam, and lay any color eggs.

    I'm positive it's not an EE. The guy I got her from had none. [​IMG] I think she's possibly half belgium quail, but I'm not sure.

    I've had a number who bear a resemblance to that "hen." Any I am absolutely certain that not a one has a drop of blue egg gene in their bodies.
    Virtually all plumage "colours" can come in virtually all breeds.

    retracting earlier response - - you did not ask what the hen was, just what you would get when you mixed them . . .

    HOWEVER, KNOWING what they are does effect what would happen when you breed them.

    Perhaps, you should tell us what the birds are since the pictures are taken at such an angle that it is not clear what the birds (hen) are.
