    I have two what I think may be Japanese Bantams. One is buff with black and the other is more black with silver down its neck. I have neber seen those bars in its wings until I saw them in this picture. What color is that???
    I am also pretty sure the black/gray is a roo. I don't know what the comb difference as they are growing. So, is the buff another roo or is it a pullet? Its comb is smaller but it is still quite large I think. The darker chick is a bit larger. They both stand and look like the buff just a different color, comb size and body size.
    Please help!!. I am thinking of keeping them.


    The pics are blurred but maybe you can still see well enough. It is too cold to take them outside to take better pics than I can get in the garage due to lighting.

    I gave the buff one away today and want to find a hen or two later to go with the blue one. Blue??? or is it going to be black? It seems to have a lot of silver showing up.

    Gray..that is the color I saw that they come in...not blue. I just couldn't remember if it was blue or gray. At 6 weeks it looks like the feathers on its breast are edged with a pale gray or white.
