    I have 6 bantams, 1 I question weather its really a bantam though. I think I know what two of them are, but would like opinions on the others.

    This one I was told is a Blue Silkie

    This one should be a Polish White Top

    Maybe a Partridge Cochin?

    Not sure

    First ones not a silky, second is white crested black polish, next two not sure, fifth one is either an Ancona or exchequered leghorn, last is possibly a Millie Fleur d'uccle. It would help to see their legs to know if they are feathered and what color.

    Cute! The last one looks similar to one of mine that someone said was possibly a golden sebright. It's legs are not feathered and can be slate colored. If it has feathered legs I bet it's a Mille fleur d'uccle. I'm a newbie though, so don't know much!

    I'll get a picture of legs and feet tomorrow. Thank you for the help so far...
    Oldhenlikesdogs, how can you tell the first is not a Silkie?

    It does have the coloring of a silkie but I don't see any sign of a crest, it should have a little poof on its head, does it have feathered legs? It might be a silkie with a smaller crest.
