    Hi there, this is my rooster Neo :) . I found him in august as a little chick along with the rest of his nest on a deserted piece of land. His mother was killed by a fox (I found her remains afterwards and I am still wondering how the little ones survived) and he was left to fetch for himself along with the rest of the nest. Now I took him in (all the others went to different places) and ever since he was growing up I have wondered what kind of breed he could be. I am not a master in chicken breeds so I was wondering if someone here had an idea :)

    Thanks!

    He has 4 toes on each and I'll have to measure him, haven't really checked yet. And thanks, I absolutely love him :)

    you don't necessarily have to measure him, just is he a small chicken or a big chicken

    He stands 1 foot tall, and I personally would not know if this is considered big or not

    From what I've seen in the pictures I've looked up he does seem to resemble a Bantam pretty closely. Thanks!

    Though the only problem I have with this is that his legs are longer then those of a normal Bantam

    leg size doesn't matter as long as he can walk fine
