I was sold a pair of chickens that were listed as 6 week old blue splash Phoenix. I heard the cockerel crow this morning and took a closer look at the birds. The cockerel has saddle feathers. I think they are not 6 weeks. More like 14 weeks. And the size is too small for a Phoenix. I suspect they are old English bantams. Can any one tell me if I am right? The picture of the birds next to my 10 month old Brahmas make them look like doves. The green hue is from the green tarp covering my run.
