    I bought these two roosters at an auction sale this past weekend. The only information I know is that they are bantams.

    It doesn't really matter because I think they are just gorgeous but for curiosity sake can anyone help?

    It's a little too dark for me to see them clearly... got other pics?

    I lightened it up as much as I could without totally distorting the picture. HTH.

    The one in front looks almost exactly like my OEGB/EE mix, also a bantam (red vs. blond head). He did have a son that I gave away last year that was a redhead like that. I can't quite tell if that's a rose comb on yours. I get lovely green ping pong balls from my girls, just the thing for Easter. [​IMG]

    Umm... they look a little large and hefty to be bantams. I think you may have some LF birds.

    LF is large fowl. Not bantam. Does one have a bit of a crest on his head? Like he might be part polish?
