    These birds were given to me and I was told they might be Cornish bantams. Are they? Any help identifying them would be really appreciated. [​IMG]

    Those are cornish bantams! [​IMG]

    The male looks like a white laced red and the females could be a diluted color of that, or just a really off-color white cornish.

    Thank You so much for such a quick answer [​IMG]

    Joined an egg swap and the parents have to be pure breeds. Not sure if these 3 would fall into that category or not. Is there a way to tell if they are pure breeds? Have no idea who their parents are or what they looked like.

    Thank you all so much for answering. Gotta love this forum, ask a stupid question and not only get it answered quickly but nicely as well [​IMG]

    So to continue on showing my ignorance of chickens, what did you mean by "They are just hatchery stock". Is hatchery stock not of as good a quality or ?

    Yes, hatchery stock means they are not as good of quality as breeders usually produce. But they are good birds, nonetheless. All my birds are hatchery stock, and I love them!
