I saw him and couldn’t resist buying him. He is very small and active. Love his crow. Do you guys know what breed he might be the guy didn’t know where I bought it.

    Looks like a wheaten old English game bantam, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Either a wheaten old English game bantam, or a game breed mix

    Mix. Probably has game bantam blood but the little crest, rose comb and yellow legs don't fit.

    Here are some of the breeds with rose combs
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/rose-combed-breeds.236347/

    And those with crests
    https://www.starmilling.com/poultry-chicken-breeds.php
    Are you sure he is crested, it looks quite small. But since he is certainly a cross it could account for having a crest that is small.
    Certainly looks like he has some game.
    Like most of our chickens he probably has more than two breeds in his ancestry.
    Cute little guy!

    His legs are a light pink color. And he does have a small crest on the back.

    So very likely an Old English game bantam crossed with some mixed breed that has a small crest and rose comb. He's cute!
