What breed could they be?

    Hello there!

    I was wondering if anyone could help me?

    I've been raising bantam chickens for quite a while now, and yesterday I got 4 youngsters as a present from someone, which are clearly not bantams as they are as big as my full-grown lakenvelder bantam hen already.
    The problem is, I don't know this breed and neither does the person who brought them to me, he didn't remember what the name was.

    I would sincerely appreciate if someone could help me, I'm quite clueless, never seen this breed before...
    They hatched this summer, the smallest seems like 3 months old to me, tops.
    I took photos of them, and I have a close-up from the cockerel.
    I tried to look up the breed, but couldn't find a definite match.

    Many thanks in advance!

    :welcome They appear to be Blue Laced Red Wyandottes - single comb on the cockerel is undesirable, but generally an indicator of fertility. They are not bantams.

    Single combed and rose combed Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. They should be rose combed but single combs do pop up.

    Thank you so much for your reply, that was my suspicion also, but the comb of the cockerel misled me... I didn't know that their combs can occasionally differ, only seen rose-combed ones in different color.
