yep, albino hen, and then the male, not a dark eyed clear, possibly double spangle. dark eyed clears don't get white irises.

Are the cocks eyes definitely dark and not red? As stated he has an iris ring so isn't a dec, but df spangles usually do not have the orange beak and pink feet, however albinos do.

What is it about the hen you aren't sure of? If her eyes are red then she is an albino.

The cocks eyes are definitely dark,thatís what threw me with the iris,I waited till they snuggled up to each other and they are definitely different.with her itís the shape of her head and her feet,I was sort of starting to worry that it might be bumblefoot.

The photos arenít very clear, but I think that the hen may have mites. There appears to be feather loss around her eye and her feet do look dry.
Bumblefoot is a condition that usually starts on the underside of the foot.
It might just be a heavy moult, but clearer photos (of her head, beak and top & underside of her feet) will help.
If itís mites then both birds should be treated with ivermectin.

Her feet look a bit dry and flaky but I am not seeing anything that really looks like unwellness or an issue. Keep an eye on the feet and hopefully the dry bits will flake off and be gone. It it spreads on the feet then treat for scaly mites.

If you go on to breed them we should be able to workout what the male is from the chicks. He is not likely to be a dec, but maybe a spangle cinnamon or something else that is giving him the orange beak and pink feet.
