    We got these four bantams today at the auction, Could someone maybe tell us what they are and maybe how old they are? We know they are one rooster and three hens, and one hen layed a egg while at the auction but don't know which one.

    I agree with the others. OEGB for sure. I really like the buff- laced colored one (For lack of a proper name.) Not sure what you call that.

    The roo and one of the hens are blue breasted red, the other hens are a black breasted red and a red pyle. You can see a little red in the breast, white earlobes are common in OEGB. The male would probably get DQ'ed at a show because of the white in the tail.
