    I bought a group of turkeys from a breeder that was getting out of poultry. The deal was 23 Turkeys, but I had to take 12 Bantams with them. They all look alike, but I have no idea what breed they are? Any help would be appreciated GREATLY!!! They are about 5 weeks old.

    Nice looking birds! I'd guess they are Silver Duckwing Old English Game bantams? The roosters are the dark ones with light heads and the hens are more of a grey partridge.

    Thank you. I am not familiar with any of the Bantam birds and had no idea what I had. I raise several breeds of standard chickens but mainly turkeys. These little guys are the friendliest birds I have ever seen. If I squat down to fill their feeder all 12 of them will jump right on me. Neatest little birds I have ever owned.
