    I was told this is a bantam when I got him (the white one)... I can't figure out what he is... he's around 4 months old now, in this pic... Any ideas? He's featherfooted, and still pretty small, but I don't know how big a rooster should be at 4 months old either... Any ideas?

    Someone guessed this was a dominique... the black and white one... were they right? Also, I don't know if it's male or female... was guessing male from how red his comb is...

    How old is he/she?
    The tail does seem a bit long but the comb and wattles dont seem very large.

    Quote:he/she is about 4 months old... I was told it was a bantam, that's all I know about it, and I don't even know if they were right about that, it was from the farm and home store here... and they don't always know what they're talking about lol

    The comb won't be big, as it's that flat kind of bumpy comb... I forget what it's called...

    It is called a rose comb, I have 2 dominiques.
    I was wondering if that was a bantum, mine are full size dom's.
    I Don't own any bantums and don't know much about them, if that were a full size dom id'e say the comb and wattles are small for a roo but the tail was kinda long for a pullet... hey wait, I did [​IMG]
    I guess my answer is, I dont know because its a bantum.
    Also mine are 4 months old as well. If you want to campare there are pics in my esther winnie thread.

    The bird in the first picture looks to be a cochin of some sort. I can't really get a good look at the hackle feathers of it, but it looks like a pullet. As for the dom., I would also say its a rooster. Good luck!

    I cropped the pic a bit better where it's closer up... maybe y'all can see better. I don't have any better pics of the dominique though. I do think the white one is a roo, but then I'm new to all this too... but his neck feathers are pretty long... but the wattles aren't all that big though... maybe y'all can tell with the better pic though.
