    Are there any bantam breeds that are dark red with a white breast? I have a couple birds form my bantam assortment from Ideal that are feathering out like this. If I can find my darn camera cord I'll post a pic!

    So I found the camera cord! By the way, when I said "red" I guess I actually meant "brown and red and black"? Funny how you remember things differently than they are! [​IMG] LOL

    Any new guesses with the real description and pics?

    Hmm.. I don't really know breeds well enough, but hopefully some experts can chime it [​IMG]

    Have you checked www.feathersite.com? Lots of terrific photos there.

    Perhaps they could be Red Pyle OEG or MGB?

    How about millie fleur old english game bantams?

    They are colored similiar to some Speckled Sussex I had, so I think they will end up colored like that, but looks like an OEGB.

    Red pyle are usually cream colored as chicks, with reddish coloring near the face, if I remember correctly.

    The white chest will probably disappear under darker feathers as it matures. Looks alot like the SS chicks I hatched did as youngsters.

    I agree Cynthia, Speckled Sussex! It looks just like mine did too!

    They're probably spangled oegb

    the spangled pattern is very similar to the speckled sussex and Ideal carries them

    It could be several breeds that are patterned like the SS, but that white chest will definitely disappear soon. Cute little thing! Oops, I just noticed that it has yellow legs! So, not a Speckled Sussex, but a similar feather pattern.

    You are right Banty, I had messed up what they call that color pattern in OEGB, spangled OEGB it is.

    Thanks guys for all the guesses! I think quite a few of my birdies from the bantam assortment are some form of OEGB.

    This one in particular has some sort of neurological problems. Her head cocks to the side most of the time, and when she gets excited, can only run in circles. She gets around very well, however, and quickly became the favorite around here. The other birds don't even seem to pick on her, even though she is a little smaller than most of them, not to mention a little "off." [​IMG]
