Need Help with new Bantam chicks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I picked up 7 new bantam chicks from

one of the local feed stores.

And I have 1 that is driving me crazy.

I know he is a rooster, which sure makes my sad.

I all ready have 3 grown bantam roos, not sure I need another one.

His feathers is what is bugging me.  He is clean legged and strait comb.

And I was thinking OEG, but a friend and I both not so sure.

here are several pictures of the colorfull little guy.

his feathers are somewhat fluffy and jagged.

How old? It looks like a Japanese bantam to me.

He is 6 maybe 8 weeks old.

I'm bad about writing down when I get chicks.

 and I never thought about him being a Japanese Bantam

I guess his feathers had me off track. And didn't know they

had this color patteren

but now you saying that, watching him, the body posture is right.
