    Most of these are mixed breeds for sure..
    I have a bunch of little banties and a bantam rooster... hes crowing so I know he's of age.. but Ive yet to see him jump on a chicken like my leghorn does(and the leghorn just found out he was a roo 3 days ago!)

    I know the middle one is one of the banties, and the back one is a rooster.. BUt the bantie is SO small... is that normal?

    The last girl looks like a red sex link. Those are some crazy crests on th silkie x RIR girls! You should name the one in the front ZsaZsa [​IMG]

    those mixed banties make great mamas, you have some very cute ones. as far a size there are lots of sizes of banties it all depends on the parents. seramaa can be a small as a coke can [​IMG] this is one of my OEGB he fits in my hand

    Your little banty roo looks like a quail D'Anver or D'Anver cross. The two reddish hens with crests look to be Polish crosses. The little banty hen could be a silkie cross or a polish cross. Does she have extra toes or feathering on the legs? The blue and gold roo is an EE. The black and white roo looks like it might be a Lakenvelder cross. And the red hens appear to be sex links. A very pretty rainbow flock.

    the silkie x RIR's.. I named the darker red one with the blonde "mane" Fabio.. and the one with the poof on it's head - Esmerelda. Those are the only two I've named.
