    Hello, Its me Shay
    We bought these birds yesterday at a show, They said that they are Wheaten Game Bantams
    Need opinion on them, Do you think they are or do you think they are different, Please would like your help. They are a year old he said.
    This is the male, He is dubbed, he is very tiny, a tad bigger than a Samara

    Gee Shay, I don't know enough to know, but they sure are nice looking birds. You are a pretty good photograper also, those are wonderful clear photographs.

    The spangled guy isn't a Modern. He looks like a young OEGB.

    The wheaten OEGB is correct.

    Yes they are wheaton OEGB. The other one is a spangled OEGB. Nice birds, I always love the wheaton color.

    The wheaton rooster looks show quality. The hens tail could be more fanned out. Same with the spangled cockerel, his tail could be better and he needs to be dubbed.

    Quote:Thank you so much , My husband wants to put the first one i show in Jan, and my nephew wants to put the spangled in We will dub him and hope his tail gets better he is only about I'm guessing 4 to 6 months so hopefully his tail will get better.
