    I don't have an answer for you but he is just beautiful! What a mix of colors & patterns! She's a cutie too. Going to be a very pretty girl. How old are they?

    I'm thinking old english game birds, though I wouldn't know the color pattern.

    Okay, using the door hinge as a reference for size, scratch the OEGB (too large). Honestly, he looks alot like a phoenix cross I once had. The hen also phoenix or a phoenix cross.

    And the length of the spurs look to be born possibly early this spring. Tailfeathers are beautiful, almost like a Japanese.

    They look similar to a Cream Legbar http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Auto/BRKAutosex.html so it's possible this is a Leghorn x Barred Rock. That's how the Cream Legbar was developed. They do appear to have a nice crele color patter. It will be intersting to see if they breed true. This may be one of the auto-sexing breeds meaning that you can tell the sex of the chicks at hatch. The males will likely have a white spot on their heads and the females will have a chipmunk stripe pattern, if they are.

    Look like "game fowl" to me, or at least a game fowl cross of sorts.....does the rooster get along with other males or does he just want to fight??? be careful because if he is "game" he might kill other males!!!
