    Quote:OE Black Rosecomb????? Old English [bantam] is one breed, Rosecomb is another. This bird has a single comb. Rosecombs usually will have a rose comb. Oh & BTWm #2 is DEFINATELY a Silver Spangled Hamburg.

    Quote:Agreed All look to be hatchery quality but I agree that that is what they are.

    For those who said #2 was a Sebright, look closely, he is spangled, not laced, and he has rooster feathers, Sebright roosters are hen feathered.

    And I also agree that #3 is a lower grade hatchery quality black OE game bantam. I have a friend that had some hatchery black OEGBs that were so far from the standards that i wouldnt have recognized them as that if she hadnt told me that was what they were.
