    They look a lot like sebrights. Perhaps that's what they're called in Belgium or wherever that google is from. Looks like they have different varieties than the standard golden, silver and buff-laced commonly available in the US.

    Google Sebrights and looks at the pictures - same comb, stance and feathering.

    I think I found it. I had to try to find it in English. [​IMG]

    rightpet.com :

    The Eikenburger Chicken is a new breed which was created in the Netherlands in the 1970's. The Eikenburger is a bantam breed which was developed from the Sebright Bantam Chicken. The is found in single white and single black, and lack the black feather lacing found in Sebrights.

    Hope that helps​

    it has white earlobs and a rose comb...i know hamburgs have both and come in batanm size. also the rosecomb. i do not think it is a seabright as our seabrights here do not have the white earlobs.

    I read that link, jeslewmazer, and checked out Sebrights on FeatherSite. There you can see some of the birds have white earlobes. Also, from the Google page you posted, Spish, it appears that the males have hen feathering. Sebrights have hen feathering whether they are male or female, so I think your Eikenburger breed is what the rightpet.com link said -- a new breed developed from Sebrights. [​IMG]
