    I first thought these were bantam Delawares but I'm not too sure. Seems like they have too much barring showing through. Any ideas what they may be? Mutts? They were around 9-10 weeks old in these pics.

    That's "Big Daddy". He's the smallest chicken we have but he thinks he's that baddest guy around. Here are a couple of other pics of him:

    I think (please correct me if I am wrong) that he is a Black Breasted Old English Game Bantam (BB OEGB)...

    I have one! I think it is Old English (OEGB) and its variety is Black breasted Red. Mine is named Peety and he IS the man! [​IMG]

    From what I've learned from other posts, the extra dark markings are called "smut" and they go away.
    I'd love a Delaware pullet! TSC you say?
