    We've figured out what most of our mystery Bantams are now but this one still has us puzzled. We got a nice mix of 3 Cochins, a Buff Brahma and a solid black one that we're also still not sure about.

    Can anyone give me a breed and gender identity on this one? I appreciate the help.

    This one's looking like a Rhode Island Red Bantam, but can't be sure until he's finished feathering out. Can you post a picture of the solid black one? I think I can help.

    Here are some baby pic's of this one. I'll get some pic's of the black one. Closest thing we can find that looks like it is maybe a Le Fleche but, I'm not sure.

    Here are some more of the black one. Sorry they aren't better, she doesn't like to be handled and is a little anti-social, even with the other birds somewhat. Even when I have treats, she'll often hang out on the edges or not get involved at all and while I have the others out ranging the yard, she'll usually hang out in the coop.

    Black Sumatra was the other thing we were thinking but, she didn't look like a Black Sumatra chick. We thought she matched the Le Fleche better as a chick being mostly black with just a little white in her.

    I think the comb and leg/face color is wrong for the Le Fleche though. Black Sumatra is probably the most likely answer.

    She's a Bantam, right? Does she have a regular comb or a rosecomb? Also, are her earlobes red or white? There are a few different things she could be. If she has white earlobes and a regular comb, then she may be a Black Dutch (I have a rooster and a pullet right now, but they are solid black, no white on them). If she has white earlobes and a rosecomb, she may be a Black Rosecomb. From the pictures of those, they seem to have a tiny bit of white on their breast - does she have white on her breast?

    Yes, a bantam. I think it's a regular comb but I'll have to double check later today. There is no white on her at all.
