    If you have clearer pics of them it might help better. A few breeds come in that color.

    Yes bantams, I only just learned the term as in France they just call them "naine" meaning dwarf.

    They remind me of Silver Duckwing Old English Game Bantams.

    Yes, those are silver duckwing Old English Game bantams, if they have a caramel color on their chests. I can't see if they do from the pictures.

    Yes they have a caramel colour on the chest. They seem really friendly, i've had them two days and while i let them out in the garden for a while they took quite an interest in what i was doing, perhaps its because i was tilling and there were lots of nice worms??:):)
