They could be Black Australorps, unless the "bandis" meant Bantams. Then it maybe a Japanese bantam.
I'm not sure, I'm just going with what the note with them said. My kids wanted them and we had talked about getting chickens so I said what the heck. Would they be black Japanese bantams? I'm trying to find pictures of what they will look like when they are older for my kids.
Here is another picture.
I've heard a lot of people call Bantams "Banties", perhaps these people got confused and wrote Bandies? But, it is hard to say. There are a lot of black breeds out there. Australorps tend to be the most common of the solid black largefowl sold. But, if it is a bantam it is most likely an Old English (red earlobes), Dutch (white earlobes), or Japanese (short legs and a funny tail set). You will probably have to wait until they are fully feathered, to discover what breed you actually have.
