Are you asking if it is a bantam? Or is it a rooster? Or both? Can't tell how large or small without comparison to a regular size bird. I can see pointed saddle feathers and is fairly lyoung but would want to see the entire bird and what type of comb etc. first.
Definitely a cockerel.
Sorry, I thought I posted multiple pictures. I know it's a bantam. We got it with two others on October so I think they are about 3 months old.
Definitely a cockerel. And so is the black and white one.
The black one too? Oh dear lord! Why do you think that?
Oh gosh, here are close ups of my other two.
He's a Birchen Cochin. Those patches of silver on the shoulder are male specific. Plus both boys have very obvious male saddle feathers.
Not sure about the buff. Self colored birds are difficult to get decent shots of showing the feather detail. Compare the back feathering. Males have thin, pointed back feathers. Females have broad, rounded feathers.
