Yes, they are bantams about 4 months old. I know the mille fleur pair is a little roo and hen.
Okay, dark cornish and mille fleur game birds? Anybody else?
#1 - dark cornish
#2 - don't know
Aren't Cornish meat birds? I know these are bantams, but they are like 4 months old, shouldn't she be fatter? What are these used for eggs or meat? Just wondering.
1: Dark Cornish
Rest: No clue
I don't think there's a dark cornish bantam. Sorry to say. They're big birds and were bred for meat and nothing else. No body would eat a cornish banty!
I researched this a lot. My dark cornish is actually smaller than any chicken I've ever seen and she's not going to grow anymore! She has dwarfism.
Even though this is rarer in poultry than in humans, you may have one too.
Dark cornish aren't as large as the huge cornish x's that most people buy as meat birds. Some people keep the dark cornish hens as pets and for eggs - they lay brown eggs (don't know how many).
Actually, dark cornish are pretty common as bantams - most of the dark cornish chickens shown on feathersite are bantams:
