    I am wondering about the mille fluer bantam on the right, but it you want to try telling me both that would be great too. These are young birds about to the age that they should be laying. The one on the left is a light brahma bantam. Thanks

    The light Brahma is a pullet and I'd say the MF is a roo.

    The MF is definately a roo. The pronounced comb/wattles are a dead give away.

    Yeah, I knew it was a Brahma, it even said it in the post, I just had Sussex on my mind already and just type that instead of Brahma, When I saw that M To The Maxx, had quoted me, I saw it then and edited it.
