    what size was the egg? if it was on the small side it could be bantam...

    the only thing that jumps out at me looking at those pics is it looks like the ancona I hatched [​IMG]

    It was a decent sized egg but all the others never hatched but when we opened them it was well past the hatch date and they were still beating but they were all deformed. the eggs filled up with blood and they died so i wonder if he is just going to be small [​IMG]

    oh, and what color was the egg?

    eta- he could be a mix....a lf hen with a bantam roo, which would make him smaller...

    Definitely looks like a cockeral. As far what breed? Thats open for more discussion. Will need to see whether he is featherlegged or not and to see him fully feathered. Only time will tell. I dont know of any male bird that is quiet. I know there are some barkless dogs, maybe someone can genetically breed crowless cocks. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
