    I recieved 5 lovely OEG bantams from Barb S. this week (we traded a few back and forth!) and I am having trouble figuring them out. All I know for certain is that they are Old English and TINY! (OMG! Are they TINY! I'm sooo adoring their tiny cute little butts!) Ok, anyway....! One is a black and white, one is brown and white with a reddish head (the very smallest of them all, it is the size of a QUARTER! No fooling!), two are 'chipmunky' although one is far lighter in color, and the last one is sort of 'chipmunky' but very dark and WAY smaller than the other chipmunk ones. I know that doesnt help you all much, so I have taken photos. I just wanted to explain their coloring in case it doesn't show up too well in the pics. I will upload them and post them in the next post. (About 5 minutes....lol)

    Keep in mind the photos do not do justice to their size, as they are pictured on the tiny hands of my 8 year old! They are incredibly small! With #2 being the smallest of all 5 of them! He can STAND on a quarter! (I'll have to get a photo of that! lol)

    Anywho, any ideas on what kinds of OEG they are?

    I'm positive that #2 is a Mille Fleur. As well as #3 and possibly 5.

    babies 4 and 5 could be bbred, or alot of other colors.
    I would be intrested in seeing them when they grow up then we could see what the definate colors are.
    Where did they come from?
