    OK I usually have bigstock chickens and quail so I'm new to bantam chickens. I was told they are black Jap but the comb on my rooster is wrong and they don't match the pics I see online.he has a rose comb. [​IMG]

    The rooster looks like a Wyandotte. Neither one is a Japanese.

    No, Wyandottes don't have feathers on their legs. They are most likely a mix between two breeds.

    The rooster looked like a birchen but the hen don't match. If their mixed its same mix cause the man had hundreds all the same. I'm just not sure if its one breed or a mix.

    The rooster appears to be a Silver-Laced Wyandotte Bantam cross. To figure out what the hen is, though, I need a better, closer photo. Neither one are Birchen in color, and they are not Japanese Bantams.
