John - Splash

Blanchey - Wheaten?

Effey - Mottled

Deardre - Pic is a little small but I would say lemon. You can also get Lemon Cuckoos

Here, here. Let me explain. I saw john and edward as eggs in the incubator, the owner said we can have them at 10 weeks, so we waited and waited. then we finally got them.. They both looked identical, (picture of john below), we did not know the sex, but we was looky that there both hens and both lay eggs now!:)

this is john at 10 weeks x

Ha ha, love the John and Edward thing! I've no idea on official chicken colours so would go for 'random mash-up' for all of them, but they are soooooo pretty! I particularly love the 80s two-tone one. :)

Blanchy is a really unusual mix of colours. Don't know what she is. :?

Blanchy doesnt look wheaten to me, she is quite pink :think: she looks red or salmon (depending on what your take is of these colours - opinions vary widely!)

Mmm, Blanche isn't a true colour I don't think. Looks like a salmon cross possibly?

Really unsure. She was sold to us as a 'RARE COLOUR' lol, don't worry, i like unique-ness (is that a word ?)

Hahaa. More pictures of Banche, shes a pekin, she is beautiful..

Does anyone elts have unique chicken colours? post your pictures :)

She is quite small.. My two hybrids are in the picture below, she still gives them the odd peck..

Resurrecting a VERY old post rather than starting a new one.

This is Polly - she’s an araucana bantam that I hatched from a bought egg - does anyone know what her colour would be described as?

She looks like a very pale Lavender, almost like Isabel colouring

Thanks Lewis that makes sense as I’ve just read that you can get Isabel when Lavender dilutes Wheaten, and I know the flock the egg came from had Wheaten in and actually when she was a chick that’s what colour I thought she’d end up.

Very pretty girl 😊

I had one called Polly - she squawked like a parrot - I hope yours is a lot quieter :wink:
