    Can any one tell me what the breed and sex is of these bantams. One is grey white with grey on the legs. The other is brownish. They are about 3 weeks old.

    The one on the bottom is a little rooster. The picture is pretty dark but it looks like it is feathering out like a Silver Old English Game Bantam. Not 100% sure though.

    Now that I look again, the first pics looks like a light blue or splash...maybe Self Blue...so it could be OEGB too. Definitely not 100% though. I really can't tell from that pic...

    OH NO! Two roosters! How can you tell? I got these at the Agway in the assorted bantams bin. I orginally got three but one died. Was hoping for a boy and girl. Will they be alright since they were raised together in the same coop with 17 other standard(golden comets, California whites) or large breed hens(australops? I am also getting a silkie rooster. Will this be a problem as far as fighting or cross breeding?

    Thanks
    Chris

    #1 looks like he has some long legs, I think it may be a modern game bantam, If you keep him I am sure you will very much enjoy his personality.

    ETA: It looks like it might be a self blue color?, not sure, they do change color for the first few months
