    My grandpa gave me these banties and I was wondering if they were actual breeds or some sort of cross-breeds. They are all the same age. The one in the house is a rooster and the other two are hens. The roo is clean legged and the hens have leg feathering.

    I think the gray hen is a faverole. I'm not sure what the other ones are though. Sorry!:/:):bow

    All of them look like mixes to me. The two birds with feathered feet probably have Belgian Bearded D'Uccle or Cochin bantam in them. The rooster may have Old English Game in him, or Dutch Bantam (based off of the slate blue legs).

    Thanks. Grandpa does have both Cochin and D'Uccle, as well as Dutch, so that makes perfect sense. He hatched these 3 from his mixed flock, but I just wondered if any of them happened to be a pure breed.
