    Multiple questions on this pair, please. Age unknown, but they are young, and quite small. Sold to me as two OE bantam females with color being stated as buff laced. We are very fond of them, but I have been unable to locate any other buff laced OE bantams and wondered if that was their color. Also, the bird who appears to be male (opinions, please) seems to have had his comb dubbed. ?? It is completely straight in profile. Seems odd to me. The female bird has some faint notches on her comb. I didn't get a close up of hers. Any input is appreciated.
    Thank you!

    Download the pics to your computer and then onto byc if possible. I know it can be done with flicker, but I don't use it so can't help you out.

    They are so very different in attitude and tail carriage and posture. Bird on the left looks obviously rooster, the other a hen, IMO, but this was an experienced bird person who sold them to me, so I don't know what to think. Especially since the male appears to have no comb whatsoever.
