    I just found a picture of a russian orloff and it looks just like my little cooper. He has the personality of one. He is sweet and loves to cuddle! [​IMG]

    What type of comb does he have? There is such a thing as a bantam Russian Orloff, though they are even rarer than the large fowl Russian Orloff. Your little cockerel does look similar, but his comb looks like a single comb in this photo. Orloffs have strawberry combs, so if your cockerel doesn't, he is not an Orloff. Another possibility for his breed is Mille Fleur Old English Game.

    He's cute!

    He has a single comb. Must be an old English. I just love him! He's snuggling with my 6 year in the house right now.

    orloffs have beards and walnut combs. Your little man is likely a old english

    Actually, Russian Orloffs have walnut combs, but I agree this looks like a single comb in the photo. Because of it's yellow legs, I don't think it's an Old English Game either, but I agree it is likely a Mille Fleur of some kind (maybe a mixed breed?).

    I posted this while farmerChef was posting the previous post, but I think he may have it with the Old English Spangled Orloff.

    Might be a Millie Fleur Old English Game mix.
