    Probably last year's Spring boy, I have *no idea* what he might be, and the guy who gave him to me didn't know either. He's probably a mutt?

    He looks like a Game mix to me...a bit heavier in the body than many (thus mix), but the wing tips seem long enough for game type.

    Coloring and tail also suggest game.

    Here's the OEGB photos from Feathersite
    http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/Games/GameBantams/BRKOEGBantams.html

    You'll see what I mean by tail in a number of the photos for roosters and the longer wing tips...but remember your boy is a mix with probably a layer type which has mitigated that.

    Regular size games are here:
