    I received these 4 bantams from a friend who had no idea what kind they are and barely knew their ages. Please help me! I would love to know their breeds. Only one of the 3 hens has started laying that I am positive of, though a different egg has appeared.

    I think they're all mixed breed birds.

    The rooster in the first pic looks awfully big for a bantam. I believe the girls are older than 4-5 months because few breeds start laying that young, esp bantams. They are all barnyard mixes.

    the 1st looks like it maybe a red sex link but all in all they all appear to be mixes

    He is as tall as my standard red stars, but very tiny otherwise. I thought the age had to be off if they were laying. I am guessing the two smaller ones are about 8 months or so since they are both laying. It has been confirmed that the two smaller ones are laying. The rooster and the hen though I still think they are about 5 months or so. The hen has shown no interest in laying as of yet.
