    I went to the farmers market right at the end and I hate going home empty handed so I bought a pair of bantams.

    I know the hen is blue, but I have no clue about the roosters color or their breed.
    Both have a decent sized tail.

    The rooster doesnt like full sized chickens it seems. He flipped out as soon as the hens came in. Good thing he was in a cage.

    I kind of thought that, but thats what I want them to be, so I figured it was wishful thinking

    Do OEGBs normally have such long tails?

    oegb and dutch bantam crosses they do not look like they are pure. oegb have solid red earlobes and dutch's have white earlobes and these seem to have a mix of both.

    blue breasted red is what the roosters color looks like with a mix of something else

    Man, those two both flipped out when the big hens came in and they tried to attack my dog through the cage bars.
    I'll post better pics tomorrow! But I am leaning towards oegb and dutch bantam crosses as well.
