    Its a Polish.. as for its color.. unofficially, I'd call it a black mottled. Of the official colors.. it looks like a poorly patterned silver lace polish.

    I'm not an expert in these breeds, but I think that is a Mottled Houdan, and not a Polish at all...

    Not a Polish,
    Looks like a Houdan. How many toes does it have? If there are 5 on each foot then it is a Houdan if there is only 4 then I would say you have a Houdan/Polish cross.
    Polish don't come Mottled and they have Slate Blue Legs and Feet.

    Thank you for helping me with identifying my chickens. I was told from the place that I got them from that they where Japanese bantam and when I went to look up pictures of a Japanese bantam they did not look anything like them so I guess as everyone said that buying from a feed store that they don't know what they are selling and very uneducated. So what does everyone think of the quality of these bantams?

    How old are they? If there not older than ten weeks it looks like you might have two roosters. The first one isnt show quality. More pics of the blue would help. Heres my blue rooster at 8 weeks and at four months.
