    I have three girls that I got as day old chicks three months ago... They are doing well but they came in an assortment with my others, who I have identified which breeds they are. Unfortunately the hatchery sells both Dutch Bantams and Old English Game Bantams and I don't know how to tell the difference between the two. I have narrowed down my girls to be either of these breeds. So here is my question: What are the key differences between OEG bantams and Dutch bantams?

    fully white earlobes = dutch
    fully red earlobs = oegb

    but since they are hatchery the oeg could have white on its lobes as well pics would really help to determin which
