    [​IMG] this is the one rooster we kept from our little batch of bantam chicks. Does he look like any particular breed or mix?

    looks like some kind of Sebright mix. it has the same comb as a Sebright, and is the same size, but has odd colors for a Sebright.

    Not a Sebright, they have Rose combs and that fella has a straight (single) comb. Not sure what it is though, I had Barbu d'Anver once who had the same coloring (feather and leg coloring) but they have muffs.

    Maybe a Quail coloured Old English Game Bantam? He's just gorgeous! I can see why you kept him.

    Quail would be the color he's closest to but he's a little off. If he's from a hatchery he's not to bad. Actually the more I look at him he's pretty nice.
