    And they are not what I ordered. They are supposed to be Buff Colombian Wyandotte bantams. I ordered from Ideal, and they don't offer just a Buff Wyandotte bantam, but is that what they are anyway? Does the "Colombian" black coloring just not show up sometimes? Should I ask for my money back?

    They are significantly bigger than the Polish bantams I got in the same order. One has whitish legs and the other's are yellow. I think one is a roo because it is bigger and more aggresive. Both seem to have extremely large feet. I don't see any signs of a comb, is that a rosecomb? They are one month old in these pics.

    Those look exactly like the Buff Orpsintons I have that are just a little bit younger.

    I say they are buff wyandottes, they could be large fowl. If they are bantams you are lucky because buff bantams are hard to come by.

    Whatever they are they aren't Buff Columbian. Hard to see in the pictures but are they rose combed or single combed? Also are their legs yellow or white?

    So far, the comb area is completely flat. I think that will turn out to be a rose comb? One has whitish legs and the other's legs are definitely yellow. Looks like I'll have to wait a while longer to see how they grow.
