    I ordered some Black Japanese Bantams as chicks but they are suppose to have red ear lobes not white! Could it be a different breed?

    Found this video of a black leghorn bantam. Apparently, though, they should have yellow legs. So, I'm probably wrong... Maybe there's some Spanish genes in there?? Good luck figuring it out!

    First off... It is NOT an OEGB. They have better type,and red earlobes. It is quite possibly Black Minorca ,however Minorcas tend to have way oversized earlobe coloring(almost like a secong wattle on roosters),but most probably a Black Dutch. The size and stature does not count as much as it should,being a hatchery quality bird.Their bantams are much larger than should be and standards are generally smaller than should be.
