What is this? Wyandotte mix?

    I got more birds this weekend, and wondering what these two are.
    The person said Columbian Wyandotte, but they have feathers on their legs. Wyandottes are clean legs, so not sure what these could be. Any ideas?

    These two are from separate hatches, larger one approx 12 weeks old, smaller one I'm not sure, but it's the cutest little thing ever!!

    Here they are with some other newbies:

    the baby:

    I'm worried he might be a roo, based on his lower back feathering. (can't keep roos) but this one really is adorable!

    Thanks in advance for any help you may have.

    Ah, yes, good guess. I did ask if they were bantams, and it does seem so.

    They guy I got them from was selling for someone else (for the moment) and I was kinda in a hurry and just thought they were too cute and took them!! Doesn't "really" matter what they are, but it sure would be nice to know what to expect, especially when (and if) they start laying. Bigger eggs the better for me.

    I'm going to see if I can track down on BYC who I think these birds are from and ask more questions.

    thanks!

    Those are light brahmas, not very good quality for breeding. But cute [​IMG]

    why not good quality for breeding? curious

    I won't be breeding, since I shouldn't be keeping roos, and I mainly like chickens "just because". We're not involved in shows... at least not yet.

    See how they are covered in black and gray splotches?

    Here is a picture of some of my breeders. This is how they should look. See how there bodies are white with black on the hackles, and tails.
