    About how big are they? They look like there big for a bantam. Would you say there 3.0 to 3.5 lbs?

    They look like they could be a game type fowl, also there pattern/ color is Spangled.

    Each are about 3 lbs. or little less. They are half the size of the Leghorns. Thanks for your inquiry and help.

    At first, I thought they were speckled Sussexes. But now, I'm leaning toward Mille Fleur Old English Game Bantam. The dark brown one is very friendly.

    At about 3 pounds they are way to big to be a bantam (a bantam type hen would be 22 oz. or a pound or there about), so I'm leaning to them having a Large fowl Gamefowl breed like Old English or American in them.

    I still would call there color Spangled since a Spangle pattern can very so much from breed to breed and even with in hatch mates with some breeds.
    Look up Spangled American Gamefowl and look at how different this pattern can be in different fowl.
