    Can you guys tell me what I have here? I got these bantams at the feed store. They came from Ideal.

    Quote:No feathered feet except on the cochin. I though mille fleur d'uccle had puffier cheeks. These birds are more slender. I just don't know.

    The top and third ones look like they'll be of the golden laced pattern, likely Sebrights, but possibly OEs too. The second one looks like a silver laced something... like a Wyandotte. BUT... I could be totally wrong. So for error's sake I'm going to say they're all rare Norwegian Feathered Bats. [​IMG] Gosh, where'd you find those? lol

    You guys are crackin me up. [​IMG] I'll have to go out and examine the combs really good. Don't Mille fluer have feathered legs? These don't. I'm hoping for sebrights. That is what I was thinking because of their slender head.

    Anymore gueses out there?
