are there dorking bantams?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by lampshadeee69, Aug 18, 2011.

  1. I have a little bantam who looks a lot like a dorking, the only difference is that he doesnt have extra toes. He's either a dorking bantam (if those exist) or a silver laced OEG rooster. Those darn english had to make their breeds so similar...




    Anyways, here's cletus.[​IMG]

    He's not Silver Laced. Maybe Silver Duckwing OEG. I think there are Dorking Bantams, but they are very rare. Where did you get him?

    Maybe he's a cross-breed? He's got the long-but-stout body as a Dorking, but you're right... they need 5-toes.

    Dorkings have 5 toes. [​IMG] Yours is an Old English Game Bantam.
     
  7. I meant to say he was silver duckwing. And its also a possibility he has some phoenix in him. Long tail feathers and big comb
