    I purchased three fertile eggs from a swap for my broody silkie. One was from a box of buff penciled seabright hens and rooster. Two were a crap shoot, mom was a black banty and dad was a colorful banty. Two hatched. Richard must be from the box of seabrights. He is buff, gray and black, but does not have the downward wings or upturned tail. I'm sure he is a rooster. Hyacinth is black with all the features of a seabright. Both are tiny and easy to handle. [​IMG]e they? [​IMG]They are twelve weeks old in the pictures. Any one have ideas about breed or gender?

    The Black one looks like a hen and also looks like a Japanese Bantams
    The second one is a rooster not sure on the breed.

    I never thought of Japanese. She does have very short legs, her wings actually touch the ground. At twelve weeks she still fits in my hand. Richard is only slightly bigger than her. Thanks so much for your input.

    Just read up on the Serama and Richard fits some of the descriptions. He looks like a couple of the adolescents in the photos. He is also very tame for a roo. He doesn't struggle or complain when I pick him up. The breed seems a bit fancy for the place I got him from though. You never know. Thanks for the input.
