    Do you recognize this particular breed of bantam chicken? The boys are smaller than my Japanese Bantams. I was told OEGB but, have also been told not OEGB. The feedstore sold them as chicks to me as OEGB hens. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] obviously not hens. [​IMG][/IMG]

    They're not purebred Old English Game bantams, since one has muffs/beard and the both appear to have rose combs. I would guess that they are hatchery quality D'Anvers or D'Anvers mixes.
