    I was given these 2 and am not sure of their breed. Any help appreciated.
    Also... He is so much bigger than her. Will this be a problem?

    Are they bantams? The hen looks bantamish. The rooster looks game maybe game bantam?

    I have no idea really. He is quite big to be a bantam tho. She could possibly be.

    He is enormous next to the other. I think he might kill her attempting to breed. Roosters are rough and he looks like a heavy weight. I'd give him back.

    I could give her back back not him. I'll probably separate them and find him a more suitable mate.

    Yea she most likely is a bantam and he looks like a game rooster. I have both several bantams and a hatch rooster although I don't let him breed them cause of the size difference
