    Hi,

    Today I was very lucky and was given three very pretty birds(in my opinion anyway!). The only problem is that I have no idea what breed they are, in the title I say they are bantams but I am not sure. The person who gave them to me was also very vague about the birds. He believed they were about 8 months but had no idea about the breed. I have attached some pictures, the pictures are not great but hopefully they will be good enough to be able to distinguish the breed.

    Can you try to get better pictures? Maybe focus on their combs and legs in some, whole body in others?

    They all look like Old English Game Bantams, IMO. The two darker pullets look to be Wheaten. The lighter pullet might be Splash Wheaten? Do her tail and wing feathers look slightly gray?
