    I have two banties that I was told were seramas when I bought them but now I'm not so sure. First they seem like their legs are too long. Second, I'm not seeing the vertical wings/tail. Both have a super sweet disposition. They're both about 5 months old and siblings (I assume, they came form the same person, at the same time). Can someone help me out with this? If they're not seramas does anyone have an idea what they may be? I'll include some pictures. Apologies for the poo:yiipchick.

    As chicks approx 1 week old.

    They look like my Campines. I have silver though but they come in gold too.

    Def not Buttercups... these birds have a single comb... Plus Buttercups don't come in bantam size.
    I say bantam gold campines

    Yep...Golden Campine. The comb on a buttercup looks like...well, like a buttercup [​IMG]

    If you go to feathersite.com, you can see pics of other Golden Campines.

    Very pretty!!!

    WOW, learn something new every day! Thanks! [​IMG] I've always gone by the Henderson chart on breeds and they didn't show the bantam as an option, so never followed up totally on them.
