    I know nothing at all about bantys. was told they are mostly Old English Game bantams but also was told seabrights. I don't doubt they will get adopted regardless but if people ask curious what the best thing to tell them would be as far as what the birds are.

    I see some D'Anvers and D'Anvers mixes, one possible Sebright, and a Japanese Bantam or Japanese Bantam mix. It is certainly possible that some have Old English Game in them as well.

    Picture #2 the bird most "front and center" (brown/bearded)is an Easter Egger, pullet.....behind that bird (white) is a cockerel of some sort
    Picture #1 - solid black bird on left side of group (bearded) looks EE or OE
    I see one that *may* be a Sebright - the gold laced bird in pictures 1 and 3 - clearer shot of that one would be helpful as he/she is not that clear in either shot

    I see what looks to be some Easter Egger bantams, Black Australorp bantams, a Golden Sebright bantam, and a Black Tailed White Japanese bantam.

    Do either of you think that the black bird with the muffs/beard, slate legs, and (from what I can see) a rose or pea comb could be a Black Belgian Bearded D'Anvers? I agree that it could certainly be an Easter Egger, but when I first looked at it, I though Black D'Anvers.

    Possibly. A profile view showing the tail would help determine that.

    The distance and angles on these pics are not the best for determining breeds.
