I bought this pair a couple of months ago at a bird sale. The guy said they were "Little Blues". Some kind of Lemon Blue deveant I guess. They have a very small body with extremely long legs for their size. I just thought they were too cool and had to have them. Has anybody heard of these before? Is this a common breed? I made them their own pen and they have been doing good. In fact the hen just hatched-out this morning.

They're Lemon Blue Modern Game Bantams. Lemon Blue is a colour variety not a breed. In this case the breed is Modern Game Bantam & Lemon Blue the colour.

What he said.
In the first place for him to be a Lemon Blue he'd need to be blue [gray if you will].
In the second place the defining breed characteristic for Modern Games is the long legs.
The bird in your second picture is an Old English Game Bantam. Colour is either a Brown Red with too bright a hackle or Black Breasted Red with too dark a saddle.

Yep, I think maybe a brown red, I think I see breast lacing.
