    I got these guys from an auction. I thought they would be a beautiful addition to my flock. But I'm not quite sure what they are. Any help, thanks Krista [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Is there anyway to tell the age. I had them in a cage last night and 1 of them laid a very small light brown egg.

    I've been looking around and I think the cocks are japanese bantams. The spotted hen might be a game bird but her legs are short. Is that normal for game bantams. I cant find a height on any sites.

    The first hen looks like a welsummer kinda. The second pic is a mottled OEGB hen and a mille fluer OEGB roo. I am going to say the last two are silver quill OEGBs.
