    We have a few Bantams we are not sure about...Thought the Black was a hen, (in spite of the large comb), but as far as we know, has not laid eggs or attempted to crow. Acts like a hen.
    The Buff is a hen (she lays eggs) but not sure what type of Bantam. The little brown one we thought was a hen, however, has not laid any eggs and was acting like a hen until recently, has gotten more aggressive toward the others. The speckled hen is our oldest. We think she is about 5 or 6 yrs. old, she doesn't lay many eggs anymore. We were never sure what type of Bantam she was. We were told she was an Old English. But Old English what? The rooster is obviously a rooster but we aren't sure what type... Any help with this is appreciated, Thanks. [​IMG]

    The 2nd pic looks like a serama. To answer your question about Old English...it's Old English Game Bantam.

    They would be Old English Game Bantams (except for the second one)

    First looks like BB Red or Wheaton OEG roo

    Second looks like Black tailed Buff Japanese or Serama hen

    Mille Fluer OEG hen

    BB Red OEG hen

    2 Black hens, not quite sure if they are OEGs or not.

    The first is a wheaten OEGB cock.

    The second looks to be a serama X jap, she's a wheaten.

    The 3rd is a mille fleur OEGB hen.

    The 4th is a golden duckwing OEGB hen.

    The 5th is a jap perhaps crossed with a serama. But that large comb is a give away as well as type for Jap.

    Thanks for all the info on our little flock. We were really not sure on the small brown or the black because they are both 7 months old and not laying yet. Not that it matters, they are all our pets, we love them and couldn't part with any of them even if they were Roos. I'll keep my fingers crossed that we start getting eggs from them soon. Thanks Again,
    Jean

    Quote:Yes. A few corrections: The 2nd is a BTB Japanese and the bottom 2 are Black Japanese.
