    I was told these are not mixed breed bantams but I wasn’t told what breed they are. It doesn’t really matter to me because they’re adorable but it would be nice to have an idea of what they’ll look like as adults. They’re kind of a smoky grayish yellow with a black mark on there heads and all but one has tan wings with black speckling on the wings. They also have feathers on their feet/legs. If anyone has any idea what breed they might be give a shout, and feel free to post. Thanks. [​IMG]

    looks like they have beards too?
    I would say they are D'Uccles, not sure what color though....

    looking at the pattern and color maybe blue mille fleur?
