    They are about 6-8 inches tall but I wasn't sure about the breed. I acquired them from my brother in law. They were his wife's and she passed and she knew everything about the chickens, he wasn't sure.

    They look like they could be a strange variety of Old English Game Bantam or Dutch Bantam, if not, they're probably a mix.

    Thanks, I thought they looked like a Dutch also but wasn't sure. I don't think he is a mix because she showed the rooster.

    They look like Old English Game mixes to me.

    Look like Old English Game or Old English Game mixes to me. Not Dutch Bantams, as they have red earlobes (Dutch should have white earlobes).
