    i have another roo i need ID'd...


    um... we just picked him up off this feed store that takes in local breeder's birds... he's gorgeous and healthy and i'm just sad that he isn't mine... LOL... he's also the tiniest of chicken... i'll get another picture of him next to a soda can or something...

    the coloration of the chest and wings is what trips me out... he's not comfortable to walk around strutting his stuff... but can he be a serama...? he's super small compare to the other OEGB, but still not as big as a roller pigeon... what do you think...?


    thanks a million times in advance...

    looks like an oegb to me, maybe wheaten coloring?
    the way his wings are being held remind me of an oegb, but so many birds look similar, so i'm probably wrong

    why is he tethered by his ankle, btw? i've never heard of doing that, so i'm jw whats that would be for.

    I think he is a Serama - but am not 100% sure - not one of my breeds.

    He is adorable, I just love little roos.

    Quote:we just put the tether the first couple of days... we don't tie him to anything, just in case he tries to jam or fly up on a wall... it slows him down and gives us somewhere to grab wile chasing him down... after a wile, they don't need it... once they get used to us after a week or so...




    i was thinking about serama because there aren't many OEGB that have the jungle fowl coloring on the neck... i don't know what it's called... the red/orange blend... also his chest and wings are mottled brown and stuff... never seen that before on a OEGB... well, that i've seen around here and online...

    oh, i see. i'm sorry. i've raised almost all of mine from chicks and free range so i don't have that issue, really. thank you for easing my curiosity, lol

    anyway, my oeg black breasted red has the red/orange blend. and i think wheatons do too. i thought wheatons also had speckles on their chest, but after looking them up once more, i was mistaken, my bad.
     
  6. that is no doubt Dutch bantam! its no serama, hes too big, and oegbs have colored ear lobes

    Quote:Dutch are a different breed from Old English. I agree with Chickenrandomness, that looks like a Dutch.

    Not a Serama---his tail is too low and his wings are too high.

    If he is smaller than a roller pigeon, he is not a Dutch. He could be a Serama/Dutch cross.
