    This rooster is very sweet, but unfortunately my other rooster is keep picking on him. I want to put him out for sale but I don't know what breed he is. Could be a mix. Any idea? Thank you.

    It looks like he has white earlobes. I think that would be a Dutch or Dutch cross.

    This is a duckwing old english game bantam. The odd color is due to too close of inbreeding.

    It has a red earlobe if you look closely, the white is actually the few feathers that cover the ear. The hen is silver quail-ish in color. The cockerel is ?? as far as inbreeding goes. You can inbreed, inbreed and inbreed for many generations. Many of the best game lines are so closely inbred its unbelievable! I would suggest that these were actually outcrosses rather than inbreeding probably a bunch of varieties running together inter-breeding somewhere along the way.

    THis may sound weird, but his legs and tail feathers make me think he is a cross between OEGB and Japanese. The pullet pictures with him looks even more like a Jap mix.
