    Hi,

    I need help identifying these birds. I got them from an amish man in southern WI. When I had someone come here to buy call ducks he looks at them and says "Oh, you have Amish bantams". LOL! Well, no such breed as that. However, last month I went to an amish auction in northern WI and they had these exact same bantams running around. They are daily prolific layers and the eggs are cream in color. Also they are very comical outgoing little birds. The cock acts very "cocky" but is not mean. They almost look like Old English game bantams but notice the comb on the rooster. Please let me know what you think they are.

    Thanks!

    Your rooster is unique and so are the hens.

    The rooster kinda looks like a Wheaten Old English Game but not quite, it's like he's also part Leghorn Bantam.[​IMG]

    The hens also look a little like OEGBs but are just fun mixes of a couple breeds.

    Thank you for the info! They are very broody too. My kids want to show them in 4H so I wanted to know what they were. :)
