    Picture too small to see. Resize it and we'll be able to see what you got.

    personally, yes, as I was willing to have them shipped! The $50 plus (shipping plus special box, special handling, etc.) was a bit much for me, after researching it all.

    They are very nice however, old english game birds dont have white earlobes. Are you sure they are not dutch bantams? If your not showing or breeding them you dont have any problems. Nice birds though. Congrats.

    They are NOT supposed to, but if these birds are a hatchery line, very very possible that they could have white lobes.
