    Guy we bought them from said he couldn't remember but they were some kind of buff. Bought a trio for my little girl 1 died unfortunately and the other 2 turned out to be roosters. Would like to figure out what they are so I can get some pullers to go with them.

    they look to be saramas... Are they really small birds?

    They are about the same size as old english game bantams

    Even still the way the face is and the comb shape and plumage pattern all resemble saramas, or at least the ones i had.

    they are very easy to raise and are very gentle... as in males rarely fight.
    They typically have the black spotted breast like those two

    Just looked them up but sarama are supposed to be v-shaped and tiny. These are decently hefty and shaped different. But the only ones I saw were Malaysian.

    They both look identical and maybe 4 to 5 months old. They both stay together and not had a problem with fighting yet.
