Four different types of Bantams?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Spanishearl, Jun 19, 2019.

  1. These are my new Bantams. The three on the right are my hens, the one bottom left is a rooster.
    Anyways, they're all different, and I'm still learning this breed. Any ideas?

    The mostly white hen is very large, but still smaller than our other chickens.

    How old are these chickens? Some of those "girls" don't look like girls.

    Hate to break it to you, but those are all males. And not even one of them is a bantam.

    Looks like you may have been scammed.

  5. None are bantams? They're pretty small, except the one white one. and dang. all male? How do you tell? I'm still new to these.

  6. They're young. I'm pretty certain (but need to check) that my parents hatched them a couple months ago.

    Pointed tail feathers, green shiny tail feathers, and huge red combs. Have you seen a single egg?

  8. From what I have been reading, eggs don't start yet, they're still very young. Just a few months

    They'd be much more compact if they were bantams.

    If they're a few months old and already have male feathering and large combs, they are male.
    I've been sexing chickens for years, and can tell these are all male.
