    Those ears on #2 are wrong for OEGB, I think.

    Are these actually bantams or just small birds? They look like what McMurray sells as phoenix and brown leghorns, they are kind of an in between size, a lot smaller than their standard breeds though.

    I don't know on the first one, but the second I'm thinking brown leghorn. I'd need scale to tell if it's bantam or not, leghorns are just smaller than dual purpose breeds.

    Thanks for the info. They are all 11 weeks old. I got 15 assorted chicks. The only 2 that I know for sure on the breeds are a pullet and rooster Sicilian buttercup. The other 13 I have know idea. There are some bantams, feather footed and the one free rare breed, which could be any of them. I will add some more pics with sizes to now if they are bantams or not.

    If you can even get pics in comparison to the buttercups, that would make it easier to establish their size. Comparing them to a known breed chick would help.
