    I got some bantam eggs from a friend of a friend. When it comes to chickens this guy is, to put it lightly, not very smart.

    I asked him what type of bantams he had and he told me araucanas. I knew as soon as he said that, that it's not what he had. For 1 the eggs were white. So I asked him to send me some pictures of the roo and hens and this is what he sent. Are they some type of game?

    The one hen does look wheaten. [​IMG]

    I'm still unsure about the roo though, he has a lot of red in his breast and his hackles and saddle feathers are golden. I can't seem to find anything that looks exactly like him.

    The rooster and the lighter colored hen look like OEG and the other one almost looks like a buttercup hen to me...
