    A friend's relative is relocating to the city and had a bunch of bantams she needed to rehome. I'd always been interested in little ones, so I got a few! (Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of the breeds!)

    Japanese- She's beautiful, but a little psycho!!

    white Silkie- She's kinda evil, too!

    Lady called this a Partridge bantam. Is that a breed I haven't heard of, or just the color?

    The last one is a Belgian Antwerp Quail. One of the true bantams, meaning there is no standard bird of the same type, these little bearded birds have been bred for exhibition for many They are found in many colors Black, Mottled, Porcelain, Self Blue and Quail. They are delightfully pretty little birds You are correct on the rest Enjoy them

    I love the Belgian! She's very sweet. The woman had a couple more, and now I wish I'd grabbed those too!
