    Hi,

    I have some bantams and I don't know for sure which breed they are. They are about 4 months old and are roosters. I would like to know if they are show quality or pet quality. I plan on selling them and I want to be able to answer questions. I'm knew to this type of chicken. Thanks.

    Quote:I guess they would be a mix. A couple look like the golden duckwing and I have a few others that look like the silver duckwing. The colors just don't show up in the pictures. Really pretty purple in the wings of the black colored roos.

    Quote:Please notice that the Araucanas on the club site don't have tails & the birds pictured in this thread do. Important distinction. The birds in this thread aren't Araucanas.
    None are recognized varieties of Ameraucana either. They're "Easter Eggers".

    Araucanas do not have beards either. Ameraucanas do not have willow (green), or yellow based legs or skin. Sure sign you have Easter Eggers.
