    I bought these two little bantam chicks from a feed store in pearland that were identical from an assortment of bantams that they had from the feed store that I purchased them from. I would like to know what bantam breed these two little banties are and any help is appreciated.

    If they're Mottled Japanese they are nice bantams.

    I was looking at the stubby legs too but what I really keyed in on was the one's very proud carriage of its little bitty tail... Tooo cute!!!
