    [​IMG]RubyRooo! is this little red thing...he's quite a bit bigger than the other 2

    [​IMG]Eva--she crows with a major crackle, but clearly has all of the behaviors of a hen, and won't eat unless her partner, Adama, provides it...rarely will she eat from my hand...

    [​IMG]Adama....he loves to try to mount my big hens...He is the smartest and most elegant dancer and bird I have ever had...he's a tiny little thing....

    That looks right...do you think his little hen is also a Japanese Bantam, even though their feathers are different?

    does the red rooster have feathered feet? looks like he could be a cochin bantam.

    I've been looking at pics of 'cochin bantums", and he has the same cute little mug...thanks for the help...is he what would be referred to as a "smooth red cochin bantum"?
