    Anyone want to guess at these bantams now that they are a little older and more defined? They are about 10 weeks old.

    #1 - BBQ:
    - slender body
    - long, upright tail, all black
    - rusty chest, gold patterned neck, black and tan patterned wings and back
    - single comb
    - blue legs
    - very bold, outgoing personality (honestly thought she was a roo for a while)

    I'm torn between either an American Game or Dutch but maybe someone else can clarify or even offer yet a third option.

    #2 - Sweet n' Sour:
    - slender body
    - long tail, but carried in line with her body
    - long wings that angle downward
    - all buff with a bit of black on her wings and tail
    - green legs
    - looks like a rose comb starting
    - a shy, but personable demeanor

    I thought she might be a Blacktail Buff Dutch, but the rose comb threw me. Any suggestions?

    #3 - Honey Mustard:

    She's a cochin, for sure. I just had to include her picture so she doesn't think I'm slighting her.

    Where did you get them? That always helps determine what they are..... I believe it is a Black Breasted Red Phoenix bantam judging by the white earlobe and loose feathering. For the second it is a RC Nankin, not a SQ bird but very cute.

    Another note: I got them as chicks from a feed store in Altus, OK. They were in a bin labeled "Assorted Bantams" and the clerk wasn't sure of breeds.

    Thanks.

    I agree that third one is a nankin...look at the legs, if there is a pink stripe you got a GOOD looking nankin ....very lucky [​IMG] I'm jealous! [​IMG]
