    Hi everyone, we just adopted this guy. He has been living in a kennel/run at the vet clinic since March when he began to feather out and the owner became suspicious that he was a roo. The vet said she thought she remembers the owner saying his mom was a bantam ( no breed specified) mixed with something else. :) He is fully grown and weighs 1 lb. His legs are feathered and remind me of my salmon Faverolle (different color of course). Any ideas? Thanks![​IMG]

    Might be an Old English Game bantam mix.

    as good a guess as any. Is he really tiny- 1 lb? I thought only seramas can be that tiny (class A)

    If you have photos of side view - standing naturally - we might be able to recognize more breeds in his mix

    Good idea, I will get a few! Yes he weighed one pound when the vet weighed him and he definitely feels solid, not thin.. He is also ridiculously cute and very vocal. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Took these during his outside time this morning. Excuse the shadows. :) I measured and he is right at 12 inches tall at the top of his comb and weighs 1lb.
