    These guys are about a month old. They are just a little bigger than my 2 week old buff orpingtons that they share a brooder with.

    This one is tall and is heavier than he looks and certainly heavier than the other banty.

    I think this one is possibly a golden sebright.

    I know they are pretty young, but any hint on gender?

    BTW, the buff orpingtons are the sweetest, cutest, softest thing ever!!!

    I think you are right on the sebright. Does the other one have feathers on it's legs? Maybe a bantam light brahma?

    Light Brahma and gold Sebright. And, with the comb that Sebright has, I'd say it's a roo.

    Quote:LOL, the light brahma I was hoping would be a roo because I don't really want to keep bantams but I also did not want to get just one. The golden sebright, my son really wants to keep, but if it's a roo it will need to be rehomed.

    If you had a clear view of the golden sebright's head ... is the comb pointy or kinda flat and bumpy? It looks A LOT like my 3 silver sebright pullets. But the pic is a bit fuzzy and I can be certain if it's the same.

    Looks kinda pullet to me [​IMG]

    Let's hope I'm wrong and your son will get to keep his pet [​IMG]

    Because on second thought, it's legs ARE pretty small like a hen's.
