    They're all bantams. Anyone know what breed/gender you think? Or how to tell?

    Where did you get them? To young to tell gender (post again later, earliest 5-6 weeks). There is a good chance that they are OEGB or Japanese bantams.

    Oh, a tell tale sign to guess gender is cockerels normally grow larger and redder combs sooner.

    Then the most accurate guesses can only be made when they grow some more. I hope you keep us posted!

    They're probably Old English Game bantams, of various varieties. We'll know for sure when they get older.
