Does anyone have a guess as to the breed of this bantam rooster? We inherited him from a friend who said he was an Araucana bantam, but I don’t see any tufting around his face which I thought they needed to have. He does have grey legs like our full sized Ameraucana rooster. Let me know if the little guy looks like any breed in particular. Thanks!

He looks too large for a bantam, although that might be the pictures.

I don't think he is an Araucana. Maybe an Asil cross or some other game bird cross.

Thank you! Yes, the picture is deceptive. He’s really pretty tiny. I was looking for a picture of him with the other full size chickens but couldn't find one He’s always trying to mate with our ISA browns but he’s too tiny🙈

Could you try to get a pic with your hand in it for scale? Or maybe a feeder?
