    These are some bantys in one of my flocks, I know they are cochin because of the leg feathering but I would like to know if anyone knows if they may be mixed as well as any names for coloring especially on Rizzo.

    The Cochins look to be Blue or Black. Hard to tell from the pictures. The Silvery ones are Dark Brahmas.

    the roo is a mix he was sired by a GLC but the hen named Rizzo was his mother. So I know he is a mix, I was curious as to whether anyone knew if his color had a name. I did not know their were brahma bantys

    I think your roo's color is called silver penciled. Same for his mother, at that, since the difference between roos and hens are very big in that color.

    so after extensive research and a few responses on here I think I may have figured it out. I still am not sure as to whether the girls are blue or black but the hen and roo in question on breed I believe I have solved:

    The hen seems to be a Dark Brahma Bantam. Here is a reference I pulled which she pretty much looks just like:

    Since I know that the Roo is the offspring of my original flock I know that his mother is Rizzo the DBB and his father was a Golden laced bantam
    so he is a DBBxGLB

    thanks to the few that responded you helped me along with my research


    By the way i am thinking that the girls are blues, most of their bodies are lighter and their heads are quite dark.

    I love the penciling on the dark brahma. So pretty.
