    This is Hooty, he is an awesome something or another that I bought at our local feed store (who buys their chicks from Ideal) on June 5th. Clearly he's a late bloomer, also bought the White Jap Bantam, BRock,& Araucana at the same time, they all look like the small version of their breed. I'm certain he's a bantam but I have searched books but can't find any matches. Regardless, he's the boldest lil critter that doesn't back down when challenged by other roos. would appreciate any ideas on what he will be when he grows up.[​IMG]

    Holey moley no denying him being a rooster at such a young age huh!

    Ok, that was not helpful I know :D he alsmot has a d'Uccle look to him, do they even come in Lanvender?

    Just googled it, yes they do. Try looking at a few lavender d'Uccle pictures, he would be lacking a beard (might grow in), either way, what a cutie

    Definitely a little rooster. He might be a Cochin bantam. Or, as vickichicki mentioned, he could also be a D' Uccle.

    Do many of the bantam breeds take that long to receive their feathers? And I wonder how long it will be till he is "mature" enough to be sure?

    I have found that my Cochins and Brahmas took longer to feather. I have a self blue cochin bantam roo who got his tail plucked by some of the other chickens. He could be your Roos bigger brother. Lol
