    I have no idea really how to upload images to the forum...I have tried figuring out.

    Anyway, hopefully this works.

    My friend found a bantam chicken on the side of the road and asked if I could make room for him. He is soooo tiny! I have never seen a full grown roo this tiny...my Polish "babies" are as big as him! I looked on the breed page and it looks like an Aseel. Can anyone tell me if that is right (if the image came out), if it didn't can someone help me figure out how to do that? If he is an Aseel, are they common?

    Thanks!

    Yes, could we get a better pic of his comb? I doubt he is pure Aseel as his stance is all wrong.

    Not a Asil.
    Looks like some type of Cross.

    I would be good if you take a picture of it beside something else of a standard size so we can guesstimate the actual size of the bird. It kind of look like an American Game Bantam. It could be an Old English Game Bantam also; I just got one of them that was also given to me recently. It is realy kind of hard to tell. As far as Aseel, all the aseels I've seen before, are yellow legged and the body conformation is much more different. It look also like the comb and watles have been removed which is a common practice to be done among American and English Game cocks for show purposes.

    That bird has been dubbed, which means the comb and wattles have been cut off. It is the common way of showing game birds these days, even if they aren't used for fighting.

    It looks to me like an Old English Game Bantam. Aseels are typically much larger and have a "mean" look to them. They typically have a very large eye ridge which gives them that "hawk" look. They also stand fairly straight up and are very lanky.

    Is the top of his comb smooth and rounded off? He appears to be dubbed (his wattles and comb trimmed off), so I would bet that he's a little B.B. Red Old English Game Bantam.
    Hope I helped! [​IMG]

    Quote:That's why I was asking for a pic of the comb. I suspect it is a dubbed OEGB.
