Hello, all! I was hoping that some of you kind folks might help me to identify the breeds of my bantams. I apologize in advance if the pictures are not very helpful - I took them before I knew what angles were more helpful and they're all I have left now after I lost my little babies to dogs :/.
There are actually only two I am really looking to identify - in the interest of possibly getting some of same or similar breed in the future ^^;. I didn't want to even try getting chickens again but after recently raising a trio of little mutt hens for my grandfather I find that I miss having feathered critters around.
This is them all together when we brought them home, if that's at all helpful. I imagine it's not but just in case X3.
And them together again, older now. This was the day I spent some time trying to get decent pictures and mostly failing while they spent most of the time wondering what on earth I was doing and eating at the grass. And peeping. I had to reassure them every time a cat or my grandmother walked by X3.
This is the first one and the one I'm dying to know the breed of. I actually ended up calling her 'Pillow' because she was so docile and lovey and grew to be overly puffy and so, so soft, just like a cute little pillow X3.
And my little boy. He never really had a name aside from 'little one' and later 'little boy' but was so full of character he quickly made himself dear to me and indeed - even when he started to show signs that made my grandmother and father tell me he was going to be a rooster I'd decided he couldn't go. Rooster or no we were going to make arrangements to keep him.
