    Hi all!
    I just picked up some banties night before last and got a good deal, I think:). has anyone seen a breed of bantams like this before? I think they look cool. Really i just want to show off:). pretty sure they're mutts but the guy I bought them from has dozens that all pretty much look like these guys. Check 'em out...

    I answered on your other thread. Pretty sure they are old english game bantams, possibly mottleds.

    They're definately an OEG mix.. the tail and the stance gives it away.

    My first thought was mottled OEGB but then I saw the backs. Judging by the backs they look like they have pit game in them, they dont have many back feathers. The line between the back and tail is too sharp.

    Anconas have white ear lobes so they must be like a OEG bantam, undubbed of course.
