    Can anyone tell me what colours they would consider these 2 young pullets and 1 little roo to be? So many people tell me different things so thought I would put it out there and listen to the majority.

    The cockerel looks a bit like a Lemon Cuckoo. I'm not sure about the others, but they don't look like any pure variety that I've ever seen. They may be mixed varieties.

    While our little guys are not necessarily heritage colours, they are pure bred bantams, and even if they weren't we just love them anyway! We are definitely crazy chicken people here and all our birds are hand raised and very used to human interaction. Even the rooster is prone to laying on his back in the hammock with my daughter on a hot summer day. Started raising them about a year ago, and now our lives seemed consumed by chickens. But that's how it should be....right?

    Pure bred bantam whats though? Bantam is a size classification not a breed. They are really beautiful though.
