    Mine looks like he might be too small but he sure is trying hard. Too soon to tell, just starting to lay.

    Quote:I would love to have some bantam buttercups as a result. Wouldn't that be cute? But, his tail seems to hit about the middle of their back. Not exactly sure how that's going to work? I think he weighs about 12-15 ounces.

    He's really cute. The tiniest OEGB I've ever had. And really sweet with his girls.
