    I love this forum!!!! Everyone in here is so great with help!! Here is the next one for ya'll. LOL We bought these as matched pairs (roo and hen) for the kids to show for 4H. Any help would be appreciated. Hopefully pics are clear enough if not will try to get better if needed. They don't like to sit still for pics. Kinda reminds me of my kids. [​IMG]

    First set to me look like Columbian Wyandotte bantams... Look them up on Feathersite to compare... And the second set looks Like Old English Game bantams with a Mille Fleur pattern, I can see someone has already tried to dub the male.

    Male game birds have a large single comb. To show them, the comb must be cut back, or "dubbed".
