    Now that they are getting their feathers in, what do y'all think they are? At first, the bantam, Roger Trace Adkins, was said to be a silver sebright, but he is not looking like that, at all. His legs are turning slate colored and his comb is definitely a single. I say he, but I think "he" is actually a "she" which is even better! LOL! 7yo DS named him/her, so her name will stay the same.[​IMG]

    Also, on Petunia...any guesses? She is a full size with huge thick yellow feet and what looks to be a pea comb, but I guess it could be rose. Right now it is a flat wide baldish spot on her head. I bought her as a pullet and I am sure she is.

    Here are some pics, I would love some input!

    Here they are together. I thought you could get a better idea of size between the two. I think they are the same age. I bought them at the same time, and they seem to be the same, development-wise.

    this is Roger Trace Adkins, the bantam that was thought to be a Sebright. Is it a bantam Delaware?? [​IMG]

    Here is Petunia. I have no idea what she is! [​IMG]

    I am hoping her tail feathers show up here...they kind of curl on the ends. They are straight out like a fan, then the very ends have a curl. It is really cute!

    I also took a shot of her from the top so you could see her color pattern.

    Thanks so much! I can't wait to find out what they are!

    Oh NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! [​IMG] I specifically bought her as a pullet. She has GOT to be a she!! I was counting on beautiful eggs from her!

    I would be so disappointed! I could handle a bantam roo, but not a full-sized one. Not yet! We haven't moved out to our acreage, yet.

    Petunia is a Gold Laced Wyandotte and to me, looks like a pullet right now.

    Thanks! I was able to find a pic of a young GLW and she does look like them! It is very exciting![​IMG]

    Now, if we can just figure out what Roger Trace Adkins is...?

    Petunia looks like my dark cornish pullet. She is very pretty either way!

    Thanks for helping me figure out what Petunia is...she is such a sweetie. I am partial to her, but RTA tries to climb in my lap, too! LOL! Any guesses on the white one?
