    They are brother & sister, approx. 3 - 4 months old. They were given to me & the gal thought they were Banties. They are bigger than my Banties now. They are full size I guess.

    She has a tuft of feathers on top of her head. His neck has changed to the golden color & hers is starting to change but not as dark as his golden color. They both have the dark gray to black legs.

    I am just curious if anyone can identify what breed they are.
    Thanks!![​IMG]

    The second one looks almost like a Polish cross to me, but I'm not that good at IDing yet.... [​IMG]
