    I have 3 hens & 1 roo. Here are a couple of pics. People ask what type Banties they are & I have no clue. Is there a specific name for them? I usually just say they are a "plain" bantie. Any help would be greatly appreciated! [​IMG] Thanks!



    Here are more pics

    The pics are a bit small, but they're probably oegbs.

    I believe that the American Bantam Association recognizes OEGBs in 43 different colours. I'm not an ABA judge so the total may be even higher. I'm also told that breeders are working on developing 125 different named varieties.
    However, that has nothing to do with these birds. While some may claim OEGB as part of their ancestry none are OEGBs. They're colourful cross breeds.

    Pic 2 is a Black OEG Rooster
    Pic 3 is a Silver Duckwing OEG
    They probally not a fulbreed but they are the colors of those OEG's
    So am thinking they are just a mixture of OEG's
    I have several that look just like Pic 3 and one that looks just like the little red one.
