    How big is he? About how much would you say he weighs? While many here know more than me, I'll take a stab at narrowing it down a little. THe legs make me think Hamburg or Easter Egger. If he is small, he could be a Seabright. He looks a little like Welsummer too, maybe. Have you looked at Feathersite? That might be helpful to you.
    Others with more experience will jump in soon.

    He looks to me like an Old English Game Bantam cross of some type.

    Yeah....I looked at them...not so much....now, his father looks just like him but his chest is that pretty golden color... just solid instead of the "laced" look....his are starting to get solid.....his mother is a very plain brown with the same leaced looking feathers all over her...

    Jack is only about 5-6 months old...

    Oh, duh- you're right- I totally missed the comb! So that rules out both the Seabright & Hamburg as part of the mix, if he is one. Sorry!

    I was looking on Feathersite and I found the American Game Bantam...maybe a cross?? I can't zoom in on their comb type...but the leg color is the same and very simialr colors....it says they are bigger than the OEGB.... He is about 1/4 to 1/2 the size of my BO girls....

    What ever he is..I love him....it doesn't matter on the breed....Just hoping to see if there might be something out there i missed in the way of breeds....

    The lady I got him from called me last week wanting to know if I wanted his brothers or sisters...AND that she has newly hatched babies....Unfortunaly, right now I haven't got the room for more....Bummer...

    You have a OEGB, color is Brown Red.

    I have a pair of these and 3 babies (all different ages)
    coming along.
    My roo doesn't have nearly as much lacing as yours;
    mine is about 7 months old now

    Here's a pic of my pair

    Yours is absolutely georgeous!!!

    Babies of this color are solid black.
    When I got mine at Easter, I was told they were about 2 months old, so I'm not sure of
    their exact age.

    Here's a pic of my 2 babies at 9 days and 1 day old
    [​IMG]

    and again at 2 weeks and 3 weeks old

    Surely a banty, but I dont know about all the different breeds. OEGB - why not? I like the pic though!
