The hens don't look like Crele to me, but I'm certainly no expert!

Oh goodness me! What are they supposed to be? The females have no pencilling worth mentioning and the male doesn't seem right, either.

Thanks Marina - I just think they are soooo pretty - and wondered if they were standard. Guess not!

They are indeed pretty and would make lovely backyard chooks but they're not what the seller claims they are. The price is ok but they'll soon moult and won't lay until spring.

Thanks again. I can't have them, but I would've like to had they been standard and correct! My husband will thank you Marina!! :D
