Are these white EO's?

These were suppose to be white EO's. The only reason why I am asking if you think they are or not is because they do not look the same as my other two EO hens, feather wise (tail) or in the comb. These ones also have blue legs. I am very new to EO's so I am interested in your views about them. Thanks

Re: Are these white EO's?

my recessive white EO has bright yellow legs and beak. I'm guessing those are not EOs. looks like you have a couple of boys on your hands.

love your guineas. I can't wait to get more. we have one sky blue guinea from our original 6. He hangs out with the chickens and seems to fancy the Orpington ladies.

Re: Are these white EO's?

Although EOs can certainly turn up in recessive white and it seems they are most common in Manitoba I don't think these are EOs either. I agree with all your reasons why not PD...

Re: Are these white EO's?

Yes, they do look like the French Bresse and I've been trying to find some of them!  Where did you get them PeaDazzled?  Are they what is called the Blue Foot in Canada?  I wouldn't mind getting some if you can help me.

Unfortunately they are not French Bresse as the seller did not have that breed. These were suppose to be EO's. :huh: I don't know what they are. They sorta look like the Orps I got but yet still different from them. I sure do hope they are not both roosters, they are molting and I can't tell right now. One looks like a roo. They will be expensive :eat: if they are.  Sorry I don't know what the Blue Foot is.

You are right NaturesPace seems I do have two roosters! :(  Checked them both over really good tonight and yep both have long pointed feathers on neck now. Not EO's and not hens  :sad:  :shock:


Do you have a picture of your sky blue Guinea? Would love to see it. :love:

Re: Are these white EO's?

If you find out any more about your mysterious white ones I'd like to hear.  If you lived closeby I'd take them.  Were you told they were "white" EOs?  The only white ones are the Zilarra and certainly not with blue legs

Re: Are these white EO's?

Amblecroft the EOs population in North America carries a recessive white allele. I think it came from the BHR line and it is especially common in the Manitoba population that decended from Barney. It is also present in the US population. I have none myself so far but there are white EOs although these are not examples of them.

Re: Are these white EO's?

When I seen them I thought white Orp but I don't know if there is such a thing.

When I took them out the box I thought they were Orps as well. Was told they were EO's. I wanted to know what they were as they looked different from the EO's I was sent. Since posting these photos I have done more research on the Orps and I am pretty sure now that is what they are. Here is a part of a write up that I found on line about Blue Orpingtons and Splash. Pay particular attention to the last two lines. I am pretty sure that is what these boys are.

The Blue Orpington was developed by Mr Cook before the First World War which was a limiting factor preventing them becoming very popular :
They appear to have been developed from selected breeding of Black, White and Cuckoo with a little Spangled.
Today Buff, Black, White, Blue and Spangled Orpington's are recognised by the British Poultry Club but I believe only the Buff and the Blue have utility strains nowadays in the UK. Maybe, with the increasing demand for birds to be productive as well as beautiful and especially for good table birds for the domestic market, that more of you will look at your selecting for eggs and carcase quality.

The genetics of the blue feathering means that you get a variety of colours in the youngstock

• almost a black - an iridescent blue/black that is gorgeous [not the same as the Black Orpington]
•a superb smoky colour with each feather darker laced
•or a pale lavender with darker streaks.
•and very occasionally a white will appear [it is likely that this is a splash as it has some shading as a chick and blue legs

In a few days I will have EO eggs in the bator and will see what my new girls and boys give me. :excited:
