    I just recently bought this MGB he/she was sold to me as a pullet but i think she is a he. he has sadlle feathers.. and just something about him reminds me of a roo...
    Is he a MGB/EE? or is he a blue MGB?
    He/she is 5 months old
    I think i am going to name him Mojo

    I don't think he is a modern game bantam looks more like a some kind of old english game bantam.
    He isn't a true blue. He has some gold blending in the wings and mabe his back.
    He could be a Golden Duck Wing / Blue cross.

    Here's my mottled OEGB roo. He normally doesn't stand quite so upright, but I think he was posing for the camera. [​IMG]
