    Really I have no idea... but I would take a stab in the dark with the first one being some mix with a Japanese bantam (wing posture) and the second being some mix with and EE (green feet).

    the first one is possibly a silver duckwing old english game bantam and a hen by her color. The second could be a quail old english game bantam

    They came from a feed store " Agway". The white one in photo 2 is the same size as the front 3 and they all came together is she the same breed?

    Definitely OEGB's! And I think Chickenlover88 is right about their colors, too. [​IMG]
