    It is hard to say from the picture, but I think it could be an Egyptian Fayoumi.

    Large white earlobes, grey legs, starting to get the little white feathers at base of tail(like large game roo's).Do fayoumis have these traits? He Has many oegb traits, but does not really look like a game, slightly larger than my other pure bantam oeg.

    Maybe X w/silver phoenix? He looks a lot like my roo, dark legs and all, just no long tail feathers.
