    I recently bought 9 banty chickens for $30.00 which included 3 roosters and 6 hens. In the mix is two of these guys, can anyone tell me what they are? I was told they were Old English Spangled but I'm really not sure if they are. Any info would be great! Thanks, Donna

    The other rooster of different breed is a silkie so maybe he has them cross breeding? Here is the other one...I have them all separated to prevent that with other banties I have. This silkie has the same type of comb on the forehead as well.
