    Bantam pullet and cockerel.
    I think they are bantam silver spangled hamburgs.
    What do you guys think? What's their quality?

    I forgot to mention I used to raise these @Cyprus :p (by the way, you are right on the breed)

    I'll start with the roo;
    Spangling on main wing shaft
    Uneven spangling throughout
    Pantaloons are lacking spangling
    Imperfect carriage...is this bird fully grown?
    Hackles and saddle are not perfectly edged more of a grayish haze

    Pullet;
    Could use more spangling
    Crown isn't even showing up

    ...before I go on, what age are these? :p

    That explains the juvenile features like the lack of crown and stuff :p

    Would these be decent birds for breeding or no? :p
