    [​IMG] Well the top three are Buff Brahmas, (I love those) then possibly a Buff Orpington and the third maybe an RIR but I am guessing on the last one..[​IMG]

    The first ones are definitely bantam buff Brahma. I'll guess bantam buff Orpington on the next, and dubbed bantam Old English Game Bantam (often referred to as OEGB) on the last.

    Well I think the first two are very cute (same ones in both the first and second pic) and I suspect you are both correct on the breed since you agree.

    On the solid redish looking ones (there are also two of these even tho not pictured) im not sure what to think. If I compare these to my HUGH BO's they are quite a bit more red. These are also VERY small (maybe 20% of full size BO's). Could they be bantam BO's??

    I seens a roo like the "dark red" one and he had a large comb and big tail feathers? She/He could be a young Roo?

    The red one could be a young Welsummer but I am not sure.

    Quote:I do think the buff one is a bantam. That's why I said bantam buff orp. [​IMG]

    I think the last one is a dubbed OEGB. "Dubbed" means the comb and wattles have been cut off. That's a common practice in that breed. But we'd need a better picture to be sure! It's definitely a roo, though. And definitely NOT a Welsummer.
