    I got two Bantams from the feed store but I am not sure what they are? Would someone be able to identify them for me? :) 20180306_125512.jpg 20180306_125503.jpg 20180306_111616.jpg 20180306_111537.jpg

    #1 is possibly a self blue Old English Game bantam. Self blue is another way of saying lavender-- in Orpingtons and Ameraucanas the color is called lavender, in Old English Games it's called self blue. It's the same thing.
    #2 is possibly a black Old English Game.

    I'm not positive on these, so hopefully others will weigh in.

    The white one kind of looks like a silkie.

    I've noticed the black one, Penelope :) , has grown (body size, comb and wattle) quite a bit more than the blue one, Pearl; could that be an indicator that Penelope could be a Roo? Plus I've noticed that Penelope is the most aggressive out of the 4 birds we got (2 RIRs also, which are so sweet ❤).The bantams were straight run from the feed store.
