    I stole this pic from a different site, but that's what my guy looks like except he has black legs. I though he was a bantam brown leghorn but now I don't remember how I came to that conclusion, he is a bantam though and just like this pic he has the fluff on his butt. His brother is black though which is weird and has the white legs but I think this was a different hen/rooster combo that was accidentally thrown in by the gal I got them from.

    I remember now, I thought he was a bantam brown leghorn because of how his sisters and the mom look too. [​IMG] (another stolen pic, my girls combs aren't that big, they're tiny tiny tiny close to the head but still a single comb)

    You might want to try posting pics of your own birds, so we can guess based on their actual appearance.

    Lil Chickie Mama,

    The hen has white ear lobes she could be a light brown leghorn but the rooster in your first post has red ear lobes. He could be a old english or a american game bantam...

    Hmm, okay I'm going to have to take pics of them tomorrow if it's sunny enough. It's weird though, one roo and one chicken have white legs and the other pair have black. I'll get some good pics of earlobes and legs and everything.
