    At first I thought it was a white tailed japanese bantam, but now I'm not sure. It's either a white tailed japanese bantam, a Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam, a Buff Orpington Bantam, or a Black Tailed Buff Japanese Bantam. It's tail doesn't stick up like the other japanese bantams, and it's head and body is a lot more redish orange too. It's legs are longer also.

    at 4 weeks

    Looks like a white japenise bantam but looks a little to big for that.

    It doesn't look like my Japanese bantams and I don't think the color is right for a BO or a leghorn. Can we see a side shot to look at wings and tail carriage (not in your hand, but standing)?

    I am going to vote Red Pyle OEGB cockerel. Looks just like the ones I have raised in color shading and build.
