    I have this little bantam who we love but have questions on her breed. Our friends daughter came over with an Old English Bantam and they are pretty close to identical.[​IMG]I can not find a standard to compare to

    She is definitely wheaten. I am not great with bantam breeds but with that compact body could she be Serama? She is a lovely girl

    X2 on the Wheaton part, but I'm leaning more towards Old English myself because Seramas tend to have a smaller, less prominent comb. Very pretty little lady.

    I agree. She looks like a Wheaten Old English Game pullet.

    Thank you all for your thoughts. She was purchased as a serama but every thing about her says OE wheaten to me. She is also bigger than our seramas. Thank u again

    I think that she's a Serama. From what I've seen, Wheaten Old English game have whitish legs. Her legs, at least in the photo, look yellow.

    I'm still thinking Old English. It just doesn't look compact enough for a Serema. The wings don't sit close enough to the body and she doesn't have that squatty look.

    I agree, and her legs don't really look yellow to me in the photo.
