    These girls both had a buff brahma bantam mom and a bantam dad but what kind of bantam dad? the one in the back has a bit of a beard as you can see. Any ideas.....? The lady that I bought them from said some of the bantam roos flew over the fence and this is what was created. The one in front is a bit bigger than the buff brahma's I have and the other one in the back is smaller than the buff girls.

    I had asked the lady where i bought them and she just shrugged and said "I don't know....maybe quail' so that sounds like that would be right. She has not laid an egg yet so if it is speckled then that might help finish the guessing of quail. The speckled on in front is laying and she has a little bit larger buff egg than the two buff brahma bantams that I have. I was wanting to sell eggs from them but was not sure how to list them other than mixed bantams I guess. thanks for your input....
