I have these two four month old chickens. The golden is a pullet and the black is a cockerel. Can anyone tell me what breed they are? Could the pullet be a golden campine? :read :clnava :help:

Both crossbreeds. Gold one could have Campine in her, but not pure. Could also have some Old English Game (OEG) in there; she's got very neat, tight feathering.

Boy is a bitser but his tail is starting to get a bit of a "fan" plus the curved feathers so, again, there could be some OEG happening.

Hallo,

the first two photos look like a mix from a golden Bird (Camine, Brake .....l)
and one with wild colors.
The photo showes a mix from:
Dad is a Deathlayer
Mom a wild colored Bushhen.

Ok someone had to ask - Elmar what on earth is a "deathlayer" and a "Bushhen"??!! :)

Ok scratch that - I googled (of course - does anyone not these days?) https://www.google.com.au/search?q=deat ... QX_RR2M%3A


Impressive birds. They do look very sim to silver campines....Bushhen however brought up nothing useful in a Google search !?

Hallo,

Westphalien Deathlayer (German: Westfälische Totleger)
are an old german breed.
They belong to the family of speckled chickens.


German bushchicken:
a Attempt to create a chicken who can live in the area on their own.
They are not accepted in Germany and so they are not a real breed.

This year i have young chickens with blood from Bankiva chickens (Gallus gallus).
The behavior is very different to domestic chickens.
