    My grandmother has a few hens that she doesn't know what breed they are. I think the larger hen is an ISA Brown. I don't know what the two bantams are. Does anyone know what these girls are? Thank you for any help identifying these girls.

    The brown one maybe a Dutch bantam or a Old English Game but I'm not sure what the other one is.

    Both bantams are Old English Game bantams/mixes of that breed.

    Ok. Thank you all for your help. My grandmother really likes the white and black bantam. It lays really nice large eggs for a bantam. My grandmother really loves her eggs they always have nice large yolks and not as much whites as regular eggs. Any suggestions on bantam breeds that also lay an egg with large yolks? I want to add a few more to her flock.
