    I saw an ad for sebright bantams for sale. I got there and these are what I they were selling as sebrights. Clearly not sebrights but I couldn't resist buying them anyway. They are all black. What are they?

    Those are Dutch Bantams.

    Old English have red earlobes.

    Quote:[​IMG] Are we just guessing?

    The birds in question have a Single Comb not a Rose Comb. In order to be a Rosecomb Bantam don't you think it should have a Rose Comb?

    They could also possibly be bantam Minorcas or Leghorns.
