    I ended up with these at the local sale last weekend how would you rate their quality? What other colors do they come in?

    I have had only a few bantam and LF cornish in the past. So I am not the best expert on these. But I would refer you the ABA Bantam Standard for particular points.
    I have seen the bantams come in the following colors: Dark, black, white, splash, spangled, buff and white laced red.
    From your pic, it appears to me that your male bird has a long neck. I think, if you plan showing your birds, that those who judge them are looking for a stocky, block-like body and a short neck, but again double check the standard.
    But really cant tell from the angle of your picture. They will offer you a good start.

    Good luck:
