    OK, I'm curious as to what these guys are. I was thinking Chanteclers, but that's just wishful thinking! *HAHA* I'm almost positive they're Partridge Rock Bantams, but I'm new to the chicken world so.... what would you say? They're all around 6 months old, I was told.

    Also - can you give me an idea on these ones? What kind of bantams do you think they are? And I'm thinking they're all hens, but I'm not positive.

    (I was thinking of a Golden Sebright mix for the above girl - she does have the blue/gray legs.)

    (we call the white one "Mouth" - never seems to shut up *haha* - a White Sebright possibly? Is it a roo?)

    I have another beautiful bantam roo, but he's been MIA the last few days.

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    And I apologize about the quality of the pics. They aren't that great. It's kinda hard to take a pic when it's dark & they're all roosting. *hehe*

    I'm calling the first ones as Partridge Araucanas since they are rumpless...

    And the rest are Lavender, Gold Laced, and White/Red Pyle OEG Bantams...

    Thank you, PouletsDeCajun. [​IMG]

    I'm not seeing the Partridge Araucanas in the top ones, but I'm definitely seeing the OEG Bantams in my little guys.

    My MIA OEG bantam is a Wheaten roo (for those that may be curious).

    Sheesh -- what a mix I have! *LOL*

    Sorry, try Black Breasted Red Araucanas. Chanteclers have tails.

    look at these pictures from www.feathersite.com

    I'm still thinking Partridge Rock Bantams... the markings/colors of the roos & the hen's wings are identical.

    Does anyone else see this or am I just loony? *lol*

    Chants have a smaller comb & wattlesAND tails. The color looks about right, but I don't think they are Chanteclers.

    I'll have eggs to sell in the spring.

    Are the rooster's combs different? They appear to be by the pics (one single and the other ?). They do appear rumpless. hmmm, not sure. They could be araucana crosses. Where did you get them?

    Edited - The single comb one looks like a Drenthe (although unlikely as they are very rare), but they have white ear lobes.

    I the first picture you have one partridge rock bantam and the rest are partridge wyandotte bantams. (They have the flat, wide comb)

    The little greyish one is an old english game bantam rooster, almost looks self blue in color, except for the tail. The other light one is a red pyle OEGB hen. You are right about the golden colored one. That looks like a sebright hen.

    its kind of hard to tell with those first birds being on roosts. partridge chant. bantams aren't that common so the type won't be that good i'd think. looks like there's a lil rock or wyandotte in them. they are not rumpless, so not aracaunas. the first old english is a self blue rooster. the mostly white is a light colored red pyle hen. the gold lace is either a poorly colored sebright, or as i believe do to her heftier build, a gold sebright cross, possibly to oeg.
