    Yesterday I got a few bantams to keep my one pullet happy as all of her friends were wipped out earlier this week. What kind are these? One girl looks whitish silver and the other looks buff/white. The rooster is black with yellow on his neck and the top of hi back. They are darling.

    Awww...they are cute, especially that really light silvery pullet! I would guess that they are old english game bantams (oegb).

    Thanks all! I never actually thought about having Bantams, but I wanted something to go with my hen until my new babies arrive and get bigger. Now I have to confess I am a little smitten with them. They are just so adorable and don't seem nearly and skiddish as my standards are/were. And I just love the color of my rooster and his little crowing in the morning is charming. I am really happy I got these three. He seems to be taken with my black jersey giant girl. She's only about 5 months old now. She doesn't peck him but she is pecking on the little girls. I think it's all going to work out just fine. Thanks all for your help.

    they look like oegb but could very well be another type of game
