    I ordered a bantam grab bag (straight run) from Meyer 2 weeks ago. I am trying to identify them. I assumed they were bantam buff Brahmas but my wife thinks they may be d'uccles. Any thoughts?

    Can't see the comb that well in these shots - but that would be a key indicator one way or the other - does it appear they are going to have a single comb or a pea comb?

    From the side, they look like Buff Brahmas to me, as I don't see any muffs or beards. But, the comb type would confirm whether they are Brahmas or not.
