    They could be very poor d' Uccles but I think they are Booted Bantams.

    Quote:Right, they do have the feathering around the face [beard] and that is why I say, "poor bred". They could even be hatchery stock, there know for having little to no beards. [​IMG]

    IF you want Duccles don't get them, they could pass as booted, but not Duccle's they don't appear to have the right coloring either.

    Quote:Got it I'm mainly looking for booteds but want good looking birds. I think those have super long legs to be booteds anyway.

    I believe that is a Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, but not a very high-quality one. More of a pet-quality bird.
