Breed ID help

"Terri"

 

"Sherri"

 

"Nona"

 

"Foghorn"

 

I'm a zookeeper, currently in charge of our little flock.  I'm trying to figure out the breed of each of our birds, and have had some success, but I still can't figure out what 4 of our birds are (I'm fairly certain Sherri and Terri are the same breed).  They are all bantams, about 9-10 months old.  I believe we ordered them as an assorted dozen from a catalog, but I not 100% sure (not sure if that helps).  I appreciate the help!

They're all some type of game bird. I'm not great on the different types, so I'm going to throw out that they're Old English Games and wait for someone more knowledgeable to come along and correct me :rolleyes:

Old English Game bantams are the most common non-crested, clean-legged bantam breed.

I know it is a pain, but could you take photos of them in normal stance? That really helps to identify games and bantams as how they stand, and how long the wings are below the body line, all help with id.

 

Until then...I'll agree game bantams, and possibly OEGB.

 

You could also look at the Feathersite.com ...look through the OEGB and double check Japanese Bantam if they stand with squirrel tails and low rider wings.

I got pictures of Sherri and Foghorn standing normally.  Sorry about the quality (or lack thereof).  I dropped my phone in a water bucket, so I'm stuck with an old flip phone for now. :/  Thanks for all the help!

I agree, the tail carriage and wings are more like OEGB than Japanese.

 

I think it is a flock of OEGB.
