    I got some banty hens yesterday that are half the size of my 5 month old ameraucana pullet. They are supposed to be 12 months old. I am decent for a beginner at IDing standards, but I know nothing about banties! I think one may be a wyandotte, and one possibly a black japanese, but other than that I'm completely lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]
    Black Japanese? Pic 1

    Group 1 possibly wyandotte far right? Pic 2

    the 3 little bantam hens (bottom pic right corner) look like Old English games to me.

    This is an old English game hen: http://www.omlet.co.uk/images/originals/OEG_duckw_f_600.gif
    They
    come in a variety of colors and patterns but they always look like little emu's.
    They are tiny bantams, long legs, long skinny neck, tiny tiny comb unless its a roo.
    The roosters can be pretty aggressive but the females are very friendly and lay good eggs.
