I think this little guy is a Dutch Bantam. He was a gift egg given to us that we hatched for my 3 year old daughter's birthday! He hatched a day early, so they almost share a birthday...she was thrilled, anyway.
This picture is from a month or so ago. He's getting more of his handsome roo feathers now and slowly filling out.
He is the sweetest little roo. He follows us around like a puppy and he loves to hop up into your arms or on your shoulder! When we first introduced him to the rest of the chickens (he's the only bantam) he tried to fight with all of them, until they stomped him down. He had to spend a few days recouping in the house after that. Now he knows better than to challenge them and they all get along fine. The funniest thing is when he tries to mate with the big hens...I think I need to fashion him a pair of little bouncy moon shoes so he can get the job done. Oh and I love how he crows like a little squeaky toy.
Now I'm wondering why I have all full size chickens in my flock. These little bantams are great! Everyone who comes over is immediately in love with him, I think since he's small he's less intimidating. Kids love to carry him around too.
From the looks of him, your bird is likely an OEG (Old English Game bantam.) The color of his legs are the giveaway there, Dutch have slate colored legs. But he is adorable! And I agree, bantams are wonderful for kids to work with, their smaller size and sweet attitudes make them a natural for children.
Enjoy your little guy, he looks very dear.
He has slate colored legs! In the picture there's a yellow leg, but that belongs to the olive egger chick behind him. My little guy has blue-ish legs and blue/white ear lobes.
