    I picked up these chickens yesterday and am not familiar with the breeds. I was hoping some of you could help me identify them.

    3 of them are banties, which I have never had before. I'm not sure how big they normally are but these are about the size of a pigeon. They are the cutest things I've ever seen. I'm thinking they are old English game bantoms? The large hen I am totally lost.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The large hen looks like a large fowl Old English game mix. The bantams look to be Old English Game Bantams or mixes of OEG.

    The rooster appears to be a Black Breasted Red Old English Game Bantam. The small birds are probably Old English Game Bantams/OEGB mixes. The large hen may be a gamebird mix or another type of mixed breed.
